    How to restore my Administrator status

    I used to be the Administrator of my Windiws 8.1 Laptop. While trying to bypass Startup password I messed up and now the Administrator is HomeGroupUser$ and I am reduced to a mere Guest. As a Guest I can't revert to becoming the Administrator again.

    Please help me to regain my earlier status as Administrator.

    You will have to sign-in with the local admin account to change yours back again.
