    Hey Corn,

    I hope you're well today!

    To deactivate admin account quickly you may either delete this account or change its role to subscriber.

    1. To delete admin account:

    - Go to your dashboard's "Users" page
    - find an account on the list
    - tick the checkbox on the left of the user name
    - Select "Delete" from the "Bulk Actions" drop down list
    - Click "Apply" button and proceed according to the on-screen instruction/questions

    2. To change admin's account role

    - Go to your dashboard's "Users" page
    - Find an account on the list
    - hover your mouse over it
    - click on "Edit" link right below the username
    - once the "Edit User" page is loaded, scroll down until you find the "Role" option
    - select "Subscriber" from the dropdown list and Save

    If you don't want to change user role and do not want to delete an account, you may simply change its password. To do this

    - Go to your dashboard's "Users" page
    - find an account on a list
    - hover your mouse over username
    - click on "Edit" link right below the username
    - once the "Edit User" page is loaded, scroll down until "New Password" option
    - insert new password
    - insert the same new password in the field right below (next to "Repeat New Password")
    - Save settings.

    I hope that helps!
    Cheers,
    Adam
