  1. Enumerate administrator accounts on elevation policy


    I am the only one using my laptop and I set the UAC elevation prompt to Prompt for Credentials on the Secure Desktop for local Admin accounts which I prefer to use.

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/112434-hide-show-administrators-uac-standard-users-windows.html

    By default, it says that admin accounts are not displayed and when elevating from the UAC prompt under my local Admin account, it showed my local account username. The policy for my laptop is set to Not Configured.

    I don't understand this.


    :)

    Enabling hidden elevated administrator account fails

    Hi Rob,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with enabling hidden elevated administrator account.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    To understand the issue better, let me know if you have any other administrator User Account?

    If you have other administrator user account, you may login to that user account and try to
    enable built-in administrator account. If there are no other administrator user accounts, you may enable built-in administrator account from WinRE and check if it helps. To enable built-in
    administrator account follow these steps:


    • Insert the Windows 10 Installation Disc.

    • Click on Repair your System.

    • Click on Advanced Startup Options.

    • Click on Command Prompt.

    • Type: net user administrator /active: yes
    Note: Please follow the same steps and type
    net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

  3. Never prompted to elevate privilege as administrator


    OK, I tried Dinesh's tutorial. First, here's a list of accounts for my machine:

    I held down Shift and rebooted, and got the WinRE splash screen. I was prompted to log in, with "Dan" my only option:

    If I clicked on "Don't see your account", I got this:


    Enumerate administrator accounts on elevation policy [​IMG]


    Is it suggesting that "Dan" is an administrator account? Oh, that it were so... I went back, selected the "Dan" account, and it booted into command prompt. I then attempted the first of Dinesh's instructions:

    Hello darkness, my old friend... "Access Denied."

    Enumerate administrator accounts on elevation policy

    Lost Administrator account

    Hello,

    The easiest way to resolve this issue is by enabling the built-in administrator account by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows + X, Select Run.
    • Type net user administrator /active:yes
    • Close the elevated command prompt.
    • The built-in Administrator will now be available to select to sign into.
    • Restart the system and create a
      new user account
      .

    Once you create the new administrator user account you can disable the Built-in Administrator Account by:

    • Press Windows + X, Select Run.
    • Type net user administrator /active:no
    • Close the elevated command prompt.
    • Restart the system.

    Let us know how it goes.
