Windows 10 Pro 64bit New Install

I am an IT Manager and looking for advice on starting from scratch to install Windows 10 Pro 64bit on a new SSD drive with Administrator rights and when I add to domain as an Administrator that there won't be any DENIED ACCESS or I can't set applications to run as Administrator?  I would like FULL CONTROL of my PC !!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just put your account in the local administrators group.

That you are asking this question (since it's actually a pretty basic Windows question) suggests you are not an expert in Windows/Microsoft Technology.  Any professional would caution against doing this because by giving YOURSELF admin rights, you are putting the entire company (not just yourself) at greater risk of disruption of business due to malware.

There was a recent discussion about this:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29076948/Using-the-Admin-Account-as-an-Admin.html
Note: this is a seasoned admin asking and we were reluctant to say do it - the fact that you're asking means to me, you are not a seasoned admin.

"Seasoned" to me means long experience with silly situations that I avoid like the plague and have no issues. I answered to the question Lee linked to that way.

Most business managers are not seasoned technical people and often get into trouble in silly or dangerous situations.

So for you, I recommend a local Administrator account and then a standard user Microsoft Account or domain account.  Keep UAC turned ON.

Then you can do most things just because Standard works well and other things just by authenticating.

I am very knowledgeable in the IT field for 30 plus years I don't know why I asked this question here, thought I would get someone a tad knowledgeable than I?

Oh well.

Thank you. If you are very knowledgeable, then you can use an account with Admin permissions.

Never download emails from strangers.
Never go to dodgy websites.
Use only top quality (often paid) software.

Work very carefully and you should be fine.
