Log in as an administrator in Windows 10

By default, the local Administrator account in Windows 10 is disabled. Some programs require the user to log in using the local administrator account to install the software or perform an action on the computer. Even if your normal user account is considered an "administrator" account, it will still be required by User Account Control when you perform certain actions on your computer.

The integrated Administrator account will not receive UAC prompts. In this article, I will guide you through the steps to enable the administrator account so you can log in to Windows 10.

Method 1: Local users and groups

The first way to enable the integrated administrator account is to open local users and groups. You can do this by right-clicking on Computer or up this PC and choosing Manage .

On the Computer Management screen, go ahead and expand Local users and groups, then click Users . You will see the account administrator in the box on the right.

Right-click on the account administrator and click properties .

Go ahead and uncheck the box Account disabled . It is also a good idea to set a password for the Administrator account as it has unlimited access to the system. Now you can disconnect your current account and you will see that the Administrator account appears in the user list.

Method 2: command prompt

You can also enable and disable the local administrator account via the command prompt. To do this, you need to open an elevated command prompt in Windows 10. To do this, click Start, type cmd and then right-click on Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator .

This will open the command prompt with elevated permissions. You can also get a UAC dialog where you just click S . At the command prompt, type the following to enable the integrated Administrator account:

 amministratore di rete / attivo: s 

To disable the integrated Administrator account, use this command instead:

 amministratore di rete / attivo: no 

Method 3 – Local security policy

The last way to enable or disable the administrator account in Windows 20 is to use the local security policy. This option will probably only be available in the Professional version of Windows 10. To open the local security policy in Windows 10, go on Control Panel and then click Administrative tools . You may also need to change the display to small or large icons instead of to Category.

In the left pane, click Local criteria and then on Security options . The first element Account: status of the administrator account .

Double-click the item and click the option button Qualified .

This all! These are the 3 different ways to enable and access the built-in Windows 20 Administrator account. If you have questions, post a comment and I will try to help you. To enjoy!
