    How To: Create local users or admins remotely


    You might encounter the need to create a local user, add it to the local admins remotely. Being if the user cannot log in or the local admin is lost.

    For the purpose you need to use PSTools which can be downloaded from here.

    Once downloaded open a command prompt as Administrator from the server or a machine logged in with a domain administrator and type

    PSEXEC \\computername NET USER localadmin <pass> /add

    PSEXEC \\computername NET LOCALGROUP Administrators localadmin /ADD

    localadmin being the username you wish to use and the <pass> is the user’s password.

  2. I can't create a New User Profile that is Not Corrupt! Please Help!

    Hi,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in creating the new user profile on your device. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    As a work around, I suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account, log-in with the admin account to create a new user profile and check if you are able to check. This will let us know if the issue persists with user account or the operating system.

    Step 1: Follow the steps to enable Built-in admin account.

    Enable Built-in administrator.

    • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt
      .
    • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)
    4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.  

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

    Step 2: Refer to the articles to create a test user account/ Microsoft account respectively.

    For Microsoft account: Help with Microsoft account

    Thank you.

    Local administrator windows 10 user and folder name change (full change)

    Hi Shaaddi,

    Have you made sure that the account currently logged-in to has Administrator privileges? You can verify this by following these steps:

    • Press Windows key + I on your keyboard and click Accounts.
    • Click Your info on the left pane.
    • Under your account picture, you can see if the account is a Local Admin.

    If the account is not an Admin account, we suggest making one and try to transfer the files from there. Here's an
    article for a guide on how to create a local user
    or admin account in Windows 10.

    Update us if the issue is resolved.
