  • You can elevate any regular user permissions on a device by using the below commands on the specific device - 

    Use net localgroup administrators /add "Contoso\username" - if your tenant users are synchronized from on-premises Active Directory

    Use net localgroup administrators /add "AzureAD\UserUpn"  if your tenant users are created in Azure AD

    You need be a member of local administrators group to perform above steps.
