Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I first got this laptop, I had no knowledge what so ever about computers in general. I was messing around with the settings when I saw that my account was identified as a special user or something like that, so, I switched it to standard user. I figured out I messed up when I try'd to download something from the Ubuntu Software Center. I've try'd to watch Youtube videos on how I could solve this but it didn't work. Can someone please help, I don't really care what I have to do.
