My Administrative Privileges are Gone (Windows 8.1)

I don't know why, but recently my laptop has been asking me for my password every time I open any program. I found this curious so I went to the user accounts section of the control panel to change when I'm notified and was surprised to see it was set to "Always notify". I went to change it to a lesser setting and got the following error:

So yeah, the administrative account that I created for the laptop when it first booted it up has now lost it's administrative privileges.

 

There's only one thing I did recently that may have caused this, but I don't see why it would have. I was trying to figure out how to change my account name because it was using my Microsoft account e-mail address and the option to do so was not present in the Users section of the control panel.

 

What I did:

 

1. Changed the account from administrative to standard to see if I could get the option to change my name. Nothing.

2. Signed into the second account on the laptop and upgraded it to administrative.

3. Signed back into the original account to see if I now had the option to change my name. No dice.

4. Converted the original account back to an administrative one.

5. Signed back into the second account and changed it back to a standard one.

 

Did I do something wrong? Is there any way to remedy this? I'd really prefer not having to delete the account (I have so many damn files and not a lot of patience to get them back) in favor of a new one.
