Enable and Disable the Administrator Account in Windows 10:

You can use the hidden Administrator account in Windows 10 to manage all of the computer's resources. This account was readily available when you first set up your computer in prior versions of Windows, such as Windows XP.

The built-in administrator account is disabled by default starting with Windows Vista. We'll look at how to Enable and Disable the Administrator Account in Windows 10 in this article.

For security concerns, Windows 10 comes with a built-in Administrator account hidden and deactivated by default. You may need administrator access to perform some Windows management or troubleshooting or make changes to your account. You can enable the Administrator account for these reasons and then disable it when you're done.

How to Use the Command Prompt to Enable the Windows 10 Administrator Account

The quickest and easiest way to enable the Administrator account is to use the command prompt.

Step 1: By putting cmd in the search field, you can open a command prompt as an administrator.

Step 2: Right-click the entry for Command Prompt in the results and choose Run as Administrator.

Step 3: Type net user administrator at the command prompt. No should be the value for account Active.

Step 4: Type net user administrator /active: yes into the command prompt. You should get a response indicating that the command was executed correctly.

Step 5: Type net user administrator into the search box. Account Active should now be set to Yes.

How to Utilize the User Management Tool to Enable the Windows 10 Administrator Account

Step 1: Administrative Tools can be accessed from the Start menu or the Control Panel.

Step 2: Open the folder for Local Users And Groups by selecting the Computer Management option. (You can get here faster by typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search bar.)

Step 3: Double-click on the Administrator account in the Users folder.

Step 4: Click OK or Apply after unchecking the Account Is Disabled option.

Step 5: The User Management window should now be closed.
