Ubuntu Setup on Windows

I am attempting to set up my username/password in Ubuntu

Originally I am not sure what I had done, but when I attempted setting up my username and password I thought my input was no longer working when I got to the password section (not knowing it doesn’t show password input), but now when I open up Ubuntu I am on root.

I looked online to find the command adduser so I could create my login credentials, but now I realize that after the initial user setup any additional users it seems added don’t initially have administrative privileges.

Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? Should I try reinstalling and to make a new initial user, or can I enter some command to give my user admin?

Thanks, - Zach

when all else fails, uninstall and reinstall :woman_shrugging:t5:

If you’ve created a new user in Ubuntu, you should be able to give that user “root” access as well. Here is an article that you should be able to follow … I think you would probably just start with Step 2.
