Enabling Search for Local Administrator Account in Windows Server 2016

By default, Windows Server 2016 will severely limit the access rights of the local administrator account.

Here are the steps to promote the account so that you can use it as a normal account

Run gpedit.msc

Goto Computer Configuration > Administrative Template > Windows Components > Search

Set Allow Cortana to Disabled

Set User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator Account to Enabled

Now reset the machine and the local administrator will behave like a normal user account
