    Open your /library/config.php file and edit this line:
    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';
    List the user IDs separated by comma. Like this:
    $config['superAdmins'] = '1, 5, 9';
    They'll also need to be put into the Administrators group in the AdminCP.

    Adding a member to the Administrator group doesn't make them an administrator.

    You need to explicitly promote them.

    By clicking "Make this user an administrator" correct?

    Yes, correct. Or via Users > Administrators > Add.

    You are correct but that is not a group. Groups are user groups and there is an administrative user group (adding to which doesn't make someone an administrator).
