  1. How can I get the recovery key for BitLocker?


    Hello, so recently after installing an update my account was no longer an administrator and since I don't have admin rights I can't even activate the administrator account. I tried many ways suggested in the Microsoft forum and I think I was about done with the problem when I tried using this method

    Step 1:

    To start Windows 10 in safe mode with command prompt:

    1. Press Windows + I keys on the keyboard to open Settings menu.
    2. Select Update & security and click on Recovery.
    3. Go to Advanced startup and select Restart now.
    4. After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
    5. After your PC restarts, select a startup setting as Safe Mode with command prompt by pressing the corresponding number.

    Step 2:

    Follow the below steps to enable Built in Administrator:


    1. Open Command Prompt from Windows Recovery Environment.


    2. Copy and paste the below command and press Enter.

    net user administrator /active:yes

    3. Close the Command Prompt.

    4. Try to login though Built in Administrator and change the other user account privileges to Administrator.

    5. You may create new user account also and assign the administrative privileges to the account.


    There was only a slight problem- after clicking on startup settings, it asked for BitLocker Recovery Key and even provided a link from where to access the keyaka.ms/myrecoverykey.

    But this link says-try a different URL.

    Can somebody tell me how can I access this key?

    Also I didn't install it from any source

    It would be helpful if somebody answered this quicklyThank you

    :)
