    Reassign shorcut

    Let us perform some other process. You can reassign some keys to access different commands, shortcuts, or Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center features to better fit your work style.

    Please note that the options listed in this wizard vary depending on the key selected. For example, since you cannot reassign the Windows key, the only option available is to disable it. To reassign a key, please follow the steps below:

    • Using the keyboard that you want to configure, start Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center.
    • From the displayed list of key names, select the key you want to reassign.
    • In the command list of the key that you want to reassign, select a command.

    Let us know the outcome of the steps provided.

    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

  4. Reassign account to New Administrator

    Unable to change my account type to Administrator and cant create a new account.

    Hi Aadil,

    I suggest you to activate Default Administrator and try creating a new Account with Administrative privileges. Try the below steps and check if you can create a new Account.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Command prompt(Admin).

    • Type the following command and hit
      Enter:


    net user administrator /active:yes



    Now, sign out from the current account and you will be able to see a new Administrator account. Sign in to the new Administrator Account and you may create
    a new user account
    with administrative privileges. You can also change the current local user account to Administrator Account. Follow the below steps to change the current local user account to Administrator Account.


    • Begin by right-clicking the
      Start Icon of Windows, then click Control Panel.

    • Then under User Accounts and Family Safety, click
      Change Account Type.

    • Then choose the account you wish to change, and double-click it.

    • Then click on Change Account Type.

    • Then choose the Account Type you want the user to be, you can choose between Standard and Administrator.

    • Click on Change Account Type.




    After creating the new user account or changing the current account to Administrator Account, use the following command at the command prompt (as mentioned above) to disable the default administrator account:



    net user administrator /active:no



    Let us know if you need further assistance, we will be glad to help you.
