windows 10 built in administrator

I have non-administrative users who are being denied access to Windows Edge, calculator and Photos and a few other things.

when attempting to access these applications they receive a message stating that the application cannot be run by the built in administrator.  This in spite of the fact that these are non-administrative users.

I am looking for a reason for this behavior and a fix.  

Any thoughts?

Make certain UAC is turned ON. Edge will not work with UAC OFF.

There may be a policy issue. Check this Microsoft Article.

That error, oddly, also occurs when using a local-only account (not linked to an MS account) and UAC has been disabled. The modern / UWP platform really relies on UAC for some of its magic.
