  1. Reset administrator for windows 10


    Accidental removal of the administrator account caused a problem with making changes including adding a new admin, updating, installations and removals, and changing a current user to admin. Including adding a new administrator. Looked online to find a solution, however, the ability to run CMD as admin is not an option. Also entering the net user administrator /active: yes command gives an error 5 response.

    Any solutions?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 reset on a Star Wars special edition notebook


    There's no need to reset the laptop. Simply create a new user account for you, change its account type to administrator (all new accounts after the first initial one are standard accounts when created), sign out from the original account, sign in to your new account and finally remove the original account. Takes a few minutes, much faster than a full reset.
