  4. Is it possible to enable the hidden guest account, if you don't know the password of the...

    If I enable the Hidden Admin Account in Win10 might I be able to regain access to my Win8 Guest account?

    When I upgraded to Windows 10, my Guest account disappeared.

    Thanks your fine help in this community, I was able to use a command prompt and I can now see the Guest account as an option to log into on the Home screen, but it does not appear in the list of users whose accounts I can reset the password for in my admin
    account.

    In Win8, the Guest account was never password protected but in Win10, it demands a password and I have no idea what it might be.

    I wonder if the hidden Admin account in Win 10 would have the formerly hidden Guest account in its list. I worry if I activate the hidden Admin account, it will also want a password I do not know.

    I worry the only solution is to uninstall Win 10, but I can't be the only person who is having this problem, I am sure there is a fix that I just haven't found yet.

    Thank you in advance.
