  1. Log in as Administrator


    My normal login user is set up as an Administrator type with no password, but when I launch Rosetta Stone it tells me I need to log in with administrator privileges. When I log in my screen comes up (no password needed) and I don't see any question asking me about logging in with administrator privileges. How do I do the proper login?

    :)

  2. Log into Windows 10 as The Administrator, not the Local Administrator

    Hello,

    I request you to enable built-in admin account and create a new account with all admin rights.

    Steps to Enable Built-In Administrator account.


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Select Command prompt (Admin).

    • Type “net user administrator /active:yes”.

    • Once you’re done, you can access your built-in administrator account by logging off your current account anytime.

    Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Start menu and then click on Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and press Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further queries, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.



    Thank you.

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Log in as Administrator

    no administrator permission

    Hi Ryan,

    Let us assist you to have an Administrator permission. To start, follow the steps below to enable the Windows Super Administrator Account.

    • Type CMD on the search box.
    • CMD will appear at top.
    • Right click on it, then choose Run as administrator.
    • Type this command & hit Enter: Net user administrator /active:yes.
    • After you enable the Super Administrator account, log out on your existing account then log into Super Administrator account.
    • On the Super Administrator account, you can now create an Administrator account or give Administrator permission on the existing account.

    After you created an Administrator account, we suggest that you disable the Super Administrator account by following the same steps and using this command:
    Net user administrator /active:no.

    Let us know how it goes.
