Deleting Admin user account

I swapped hard rive on my mac and did a time machine restore, unfortunately I had to create a user account before I could do the restore, so now I have two admin accounts, my time machine restore account, and the account I just created. I want to delete the account I just created, but since it is also and admin account I cant. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

does your main account have admin privileges?

log out of your admin account you just created and log into your restored account and then delete the account from there. make sure you have logged out of the accoutn you want to delete.
