How it Works Create Account

I've been having a frustrating time with Windows 8 and its default User Administrator account. Mainly in that even though it's an administrator account (and the only account on the computer), I am locked out of certain folders which should not have a lock.

I'm aware of the "Hidden Administrator Account" and have fired it up. Is there an easy way to migrate all settings from the User Administrator Account to the new "Hidden Administrator" Account?

Thank you!
