Windows 7: How to consoldate User Accounts?

How to consoldate User Accounts?

I don't share my notebook with anyone, so I'd like to consolidate my user accounts, if practical:
  • Administrator
  • Admin
  • Chuck

"Chuck" is the only one I use and AFAIK has all the admin rights as the default, but could be wrong.

What is a good thread to direct me to?

To be practical, leaving the default admin account alone is a good idea - in case anything ever happens to FUBAR your Chuck account, you can fall back to it. Just put a password on it and leave it alone.

You can go ahead and delete the other one though.

As you suggested, I kept Admin and Chuck, deleted Administrator - all is well.

Would it be easy to move Chuck into Admin?
