    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. How do i get my user account to administrator account

    Hi,

    To make the account an administrator account, we recommend the steps below:

    • Click Start, then select Settings.
    • Select Account, then click Family & other people (or
      Other people, if you're using Windows 10 Enterprise).
    • Then, select Change account type.
    • Under Account type, select Administrator, then hit
      OK.
    Restart your machine and sign in with the new administrator account.

    If the the issue still persists, we suggest to create a local user then do
    the steps above again.

    We look forward to your response.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    You can Enable the built in Administrator account in Windows 10, then create an Administrator account.

    I suggest you to refer the steps below and check if it helps


    • Press Windows+ X, select
      Command Prompt
      , and then click Run as Administrator.

    • When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.

    • At the command prompt, type net user administrator /active: yes, and then press Enter.

    • Type net user administrator
      <Password>
      , and then press Enter.

      Note In this command, <Password> represents the actual password that you want to set for the administrator account.

    • Type exit, and then press Enter.

    • Log off the current user account. And login and check the are you able to open the files

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
