    My computer has updated and it has put me in a temporary account even though I signed into my account when I turned my pc on.

    Please can you help me sign out of the temporary account and back into my old one without me having to lose any documents or photos.

  3. How to change temporary account to permanent account in Windows 10.

    Hello Joan,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.

    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • What do you mean by “temporary profile”?

    • Are you logged into a temporary user profile?

    If you are logged in into a temporary profile, I suggest you to reboot the PC and check if the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.

    Step 1: Enable built-in administrator account.


    • Open Elevated command prompt by entering
      Safe mode with Command prompt. To go to safe mode, use the power button on the sign-in screen and press
      Shift + Restart. This will take you to the recovery boot menu. Click
      Troubleshoot> Advanced options> Startup settings.
      You then see a list where you can choose Safe Mode with Command prompt.

    • Type the following command: net user administrator /active:yes

    • Login into the built in administrator user profile and create a new user profile with administrator privileges.

    • Delete the corrupted user account from the built in administrator.

    • Then lock your screen by pressing Windows key + L, and sign-in at the
      Administrator account.

    • Check if the issue persist and you can disable built in administrator account by typing the command:
      net user administrator /active:no
      in the Command prompt (Admin).

    Step 2: To create a new user account
    follow the steps below:


    • Open Elevated command prompt by right clicking on the
      Start icon and select Command prompt (Admin).

    • Type net user NewAccount password /add
      and click Enter.

    • Type net localgroup Administrators NewAccount /add and click
      Enter.

    • Log off from the system and login to the new user account.

    You can also refer to the Set up accounts on
    Windows 10.

    Write back to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.

    Thank you.

    temporary account

    Weird account name and lost Administrator rights.


    Well, I know what I would do.

    Under Settings, Accounts, Family & other users, then under Other users, add someone else to this PC. Then click the link for "the person I want to add doesn't have an email address". Then click the link for "Add a user without a Microsoft account". Then enter a temporary user name like TempAdmin. When the account appears in the Other Users list, click on it. Click change account type. Make the temporary account an Administrator.

    Log in as the temporary administrator account, and copy all the files you want to keep from both the Andrius folders under Users to the temporary account's folder. Then delete whatever Andrius users are listed under settings, accounts. Go back to the Users folders and delete any remaining Andrius folders in there. Reboot the computer, log in as the temporary administrator and recreate an Andrius account using the exact same steps you made the temporary account - you can convert it to a Microsoft account if you want later.

    Then do the rest of the steps to copy all your files back and delete the temporary administrator account.
