Your Name Is Not Administrator

Screenshot of me attempting to run a program from  command prompt as administrator

If you've worked with command prompt before, you know that when you run it as administrator, you can use it to point to a specific file and open it. In this case, I was testing out my memory by opening Chrome through command prompt.

When I typed and tabbed everything through, it asked for my password and

.... password is incorrect.

After few times, I was wondering if I was crazy! I even reset my password for the account and saw that it was STILL incorrect.

Frustrated, I asked my friend Nick (practically the god of IT in my eyes) and as soon as the message, it hit me :

Makeda, you are the administrator, but your username... it's not administrator.
