I am root site collection administrator for the site below:


But still I could not view any of out of the box sharepoint pages like settings.aspx and see this message:

Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you. 

What I need to do more?

Try with "Private window" with re entering password

OR try below steps

  1. Start | Run | regedit
  2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE | SYSTEM | CurrentControlSet | Control | Lsa
  3. Right-click and create a new DWORD labelled: DisableLoopbackCheck and assign a value of 1.
  4. Reboot.

Could you please check if Site Collection is not on read-only mode? Are you using SharePoint online or on-premise?
