    Admin CMD showing up as C:\Windows\system32> instead of C:\user\NAME>


    I need a way to make it so that instead of having C:\Windows\system32> there will be C:\user\NAME> when I open the command prompt. When I run cmd as a regular user it comes up with C:\user\NAME> but when I run as an administrator it comes up with C:\Windows\system32> Please let me know if there is a fix as I need there to be administrative privilege's to install a program.

    :)

  3. gypsycomp Win User
    Unable to see folder C:\users\all users

    Using win10 - 64bit
    Logged into cmd prompt as admin.
    Cannot see C:\users\all users with the following cmd's

    Folder does not show in normal File Explorer window
    Run TREE cmd and the All Users folder does not show.
    Run DIR cmd for C:\users and All Users does not show
    Run ATTRIB -s -h C:\users and still do not see All User folder appearing. Restart after running ATTRIB cmd, but does not trigger reload of folder.

    BUT, when I
    Run DIR cmd for "C:\users\all users" the folder and files show
    Run ROBOCOPY and the All Users folder and its files transfer.

    Somehow this folder has become hidden and I am unable to unhide or see it.

    Any suggestions?

  4. Admin CMD showing up as C:\Windows\system32> instead of C:\user\NAME>

    Everything now goes to the Users/<name> directory instead of the normal C:/ <whatever>, plus the account doesn't have admin rights

    Hi,

    Your concern is a little bit vague. We would like to clarify some details for us to determine the appropriate advice to your concern. As such, kindly provide us the answers to the following questions:

    • What specific task are you trying to accomplish?
    • What do you exactly mean by "Everything goes to the Users/<name> directory instead of the normal C:/ <whatever>"?

    If you wish to be the admin, you can choose to transfer the files from your newly created user profile to the admin account. You can refer to the suggested steps provided by
    Mohammed AliAli, dated on 30th of May 2016, on this thread.
