  3. Locked Out of Admin Account

    Hello Linda,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Are you using a Microsoft account or a local account?
    2. Which version of Windows 10 you are using currently?
    3. Is the other user account an admin account?


    I suggest you to try using the on screen keyboard at the login page and check if you are able to login to the PC.



    1. At the login screen click on the
      ease of access icon at the bottom right hand corner.
    2. Click on the on screen keyboard to open it.
    3. Type the password and try to login.

    If you are using a Microsoft account, I suggest you to refer the article on

    how to reset your Microsoft account password
    .



    However, if you are using a local account, then I suggest you to refer the article on

    reset your Windows 10 local account password
    .



    Note: While performing these steps, there might be a risk of data loss. You may take a backup of the data before performing the steps.



    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

  4. Admin login in

    admin login disappeared

    Hi Barry,

    You may not be able to access the options to perform the above method due to the local user profile status.
    Enable built-in administrator by following the steps below, create a new administrator user profile and check if the issue is resolved.

    Step 1: Enable built-in administrator account.

    • Open elevated command prompt by entering Safe mode with Command prompt.
      To go to Safe mode, use the power button on the sign-in screen and press
      Shift (key on the keyboard) + Restart. This will take you to the recovery boot menu. Click
      Troubleshoot> Advanced options> Startup settings.
      You then see a list where you can choose Safe Mode with Command prompt.
    • Type the following command: net user administrator /active:yes to activate the built-in administrator.
    • Login into the built in administrator user profile and create a new user profile with administrator privileges (steps given below).
    • Then lock your screen by pressing Windows key + L keys on the keyboard and sign-in into the
      Administrator account.
    • Disable built in administrator account by typing the command:
      net user administrator /active:no
      in the Command prompt (Admin).

    Step 2: To create a new administrative user account
    follow the steps below:

    • Open Elevated command prompt by pressing Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Command prompt (Admin) from the context menu.
    • Type net user NewAccount password /add and click
      Enter
      .
    • Type net localgroup Administrators NewAccount /add and click
      Enter.
    • Log off from the system and login to the new user account.
