Windows 95 did not have any built in method of creating admin and non-admin accounts as far as I can recall. The concept of having separate user accounts (like XP) had not been thought of then. While it was possible to have separate login passwords for each user, that was only to preserve each user's Desktop setup like wallpaper and icon layout, but it did not restrict what each user could do.

I imagine your school must have installed some third-party software to impose restrictions on what the students could do. If you can find and uninstall that software I imagine you would then have full access to all Window's features.

thanks for that, your are correct there is no seperated accounts, im not at all experienced with 95 so its completely new, basically when i try to acess things such as internet setting i get the message "cannot gain access becuase of restricions" something along the lines of that.
