Most of us must be unaware of the fact that Windows automatically creates an Administrator Account with some greater privileges during the installation process. Many of us must have noticed that whenever you install a program, it result in the UAC asking for confirmation even if you are using an account with administrative privileges. The reason is being that there is a Hidden Administrator Account too which is disabled by default in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

To activate it, you need to use the following simple method :-

Enable/ Disable the Administrator Account Using the Elevated Command Prompt

  • For this method, firstly open Run using start menu.
  • Next in the Run, Type CMD and hit Enter Key.After it , type exactly same as follows :-

[box type=”info” size=”meduim” style=”rounded” border=”full”]net user administrator /active:no[/box]

  • If the command runs successfully, then, you will see a message saying that the command has been activated.
  • Upon logging out, you will see the Administrator account available on the login screen.

Disable the built-in Administrator account Using the Elevated Command Prompt
