    built in administrator - Family and other people


    Hi


    I set up a new W10 laptop for my daughter and in Settings, I used my email a/c so it's now showing as ADMINISTRATOR, my email, Administrator


    The crucial point is that on the left hand menu where it should say 'Family & other people' it says 'Other users'.


    On my other daughter's laptop her email is liked to the administrator a/c, so she does have 'Family & other people' showing.


    I have looked extensively online and can't find anything that will help me sort this i.e. how to change it over from 'Other users' to 'Family & other people'.


    Does anyone in the community have any ideas?


    Thanks in Advance

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
