    I was originally having problems with needing admin access to do everything, and while attempting to follow an online tutorial to fix this problen, I have landed myself in an even bigger one.
    On start up the computer automatically tries to log in as "administrator" rather than my old account. It requires a password, but I don't know what it is. The option to reset this password says I must have a password reset disk, which I don't have. What on earth can I do? I did the "shift+restart" trick to get to recovery, safe mode, etc. but all of these options still require me me to log in. Pulling my hair out over this! Any help is appreciated.

    :)

    Administrator Password Problems

    Surface Pre 3 with Win 10 64bit pro

    Have recently added a new user account as Administrator while making my main user account have no Administrator rights for extra security. Now when I need administrator rights, installing new apps etc.., the password is no longer recognized. When I try to boot
    into the Administrator account the password is still not recognized. I am sure that the password is 100% correct. This leaves me unable to install new apps or run ones already installed that require Administrator rights. What can I do to regain my Administrator
    account please?
