  2. I am an administrator but don't have access to my documents


    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • How many user accounts are setup on the PC?
    I suggest you to check if issue persists in Hidden Admin account. Follow the steps to enable Hidden Admin:

    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click on Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type ‘net user administrator /active:yes’ and press Enter.

    • Now check if issue persists on the Hidden admin account.
    Please get back to us with the results of the result of the proposed suggestion.

  3. Removing a "hidden" user and user files

    Thanks for your patience. I was able with "Net User" to remove the left over user. It no longer appears when I invoke Net User.

    Now for the user's folder which remains behind. After performing the series of steps that you suggested, I attempted to delete this folder. The result again was an error message about permission
    HIDDEN USER ADMINISTRATOR 1579d3b5-d6d3-4481-ad8c-0dae5f689a1a.jpg

    "Administrators" appears on the list in the list of advanced security.
