  1. I can't fix a Temporary Account Issue because I can't find my Admin Password


    Basically what's happening is after an update my computer logged me out of my admin account and created a temporary profile. Now I'm not getting anything to work. Even the Settings app isnt opening now! I've been trying almost every trick in the book that I can find on the internet but nothing seems to be working if anybody knows how to help the wonderful.

    :)

  3. PIN to Password issues

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for posting your reply.

    I suggest you to enable the built-in Administrator account by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the below command line and press Enter.
    net user administrator /active: yes

    After the command line is complete, restart the system and login to the built-in Administrator account and do the necessary changes to your account. Again, restart your computer and login t your account and disable the built-in Administrator account by following
    the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the below command line and press Enter.
    net user administrator /active: no



    Hope the information is helpful. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    I can't fix a Temporary Account Issue because I can't find my Admin Password

    Forgotten admin password.

    Sorry but "Admin account" might be a description. Is your answer to 1 that you are signed in to the built-in account with the username Administrator or do you just mean that you are signed in to an account that has admin status [an account that you have made at some stage]?

    The account to select in the list is the one that you want to reset the password to. If that is the one you are signed in to then you'll get that To change your password press Alt+Ctrl+Delete message instead [and the existing password is needed in order to do any change].

    You need to be signed in to a different admin user account in order to reset the existing one's password. By the way, you will lose all your saved internet sign-in credentials by resetting it.
    - You could create a new password-protected, admin-level local user account {steps given in a separate post below} then sign in to it so you could then use netplwiz to reset the original one.
