Open command shell (Win+R -> cmd) and execute the following:

net user ALEX yourpassword /add
net localgroup Administrators ALEX /add
net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

This creates a new user, puts him into Administrators group and turns off account password expiry.

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

make sure you open an elevated command shell (right click and runas Administrator)

goyal's solutions isn't valid for 2008r2.

justa has it right :-

net localgroup administrators USERNAME /add

There is absolutely no difference in which way you create the account.

copy the User Account which is Administrator and paste it. It will ask for the User Name and Password, you supply those and check mark on "Change Password on Firtst Logon and supply the user with that User name and password.
The Admin credentials will be automatically copied to the user account.
