  1. Not Recognized as Administrator


    I've read all the posts that apply when my computer isn't recognizing me as the Administrator. The general comment about using cmd in the command window and right-clicking on it to select "Run as Admin" doesn't work because I don't get that selection. When I try the other command entries after entering cmd, it doesn't accept any of the entries.


    Here are my details.


    Windows 10 version 1903

    User Profile - Says I am the administrator

    Users - I am the only user.


    I've tried all of the suggestions that I can find, but nothing seems to work.

    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

  3. Why is my administrator account not recognized as an administrator account in Windows 10?

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description you need to run an application in administrator mode even though you are logged in as administrator. Here are few steps which you may try to run an application in administrator mode always.

    Method 1

    If you are using any shortcut for opening or running the application then you may try the steps provided below.

    • Right-click the shortcut, click Properties.
    • Click Advanced. Select Run as Administrator.
    For more clarification you may refer to the screen shot added below.

    Method 2 (affects all shortcuts, and works on jump-lists and opening files with the application):

    • Go to the location of the executable.
    • Right click AppThatRequiresAdminRights.exe and select Troubleshoot Compatibility.
    • Select the option Troubleshoot program after the wizard has finished detecting issues.
    • Choose the The program requires additional permissions option. The wizard will apply the
      Run as Administrator setting to AppThatRequiresAdminRights.exe program.
    • Click (required) and close the wizard.

    For more clarification you may refer to the screen shot added below.

    Not Recognized 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.
