Doc, for Test2 I made myself an administrator account; for the newly created Test3 I have made as standard user. Is that OK in your opinion? Thanks

Sometimes 2 Admin accts for yourself is a safety net just in case of corruption, crash, etc. Even if you are the only user on the computer. If others use the computer, they don't have to have admin, just standard.
