I changed the 'User' in httpd.conf from 'daemon' to my local user-name, and then restarted
httpd.exe.  I saved a file from the browser and found the owner of the file is 'Administrators'.
In fact, I don't have an 'Administrators' user in my laptop. Instead, it is a group name.
I cannot figure out why the Apache doesn't take my change of the User.

It doesn't look like Apache changes userid on Windows, what
installation instructions were you following?
