In the context of cybersecurity, it is highly recommended to use the computer as the standard user for day-to-day activities, using the administrative user only when necessary, as mentioned in Microsoft's own documentation.

"As a security best practice, use your local (non-Administrator) account to sign in and then use Run as administrator to accomplish tasks that require a higher level of rights than a standard user account. Don't use the Administrator account to sign in to your computer unless it's entirely necessary."

The links below go deeper into knowledge about how and why to use a standard Windows user account.

The question is: do you use your Windows with an administrative account or a standard user account?

Let us know and if possible explain why 😉
