  2. I can't gain access through the administrator.

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am sorry to know that you are facing issues with Windows 10.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time, and will assist you with the issue.


    • Is there any other user account? If yes, is that an admin account?

    If not, I suggest you to enable the Built-in Administrator Account
    and then try to create a new user account with administrator privileges.

    Follow the steps to enable the Built-in Administrator Account.

    Steps to Enable the Built-in Administrator Account.

    • a) Press Windows + X, Select Run.
    • b) Type net user administrator /active:yes
    • c) Close the elevated command prompt.
    • d) The built-in Administrator will now be available to select to sign into.
    • e) Restart the system.

    Then enter into the administrator account. And try to create new user account.

    Try these steps to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Once you create the new administrator user account try to disable
    Built-in Administrator Account.


    Steps to disable the Built-in Administrator Account.

    • a) Press Windows + X, Select Run.
    • b) Type net user administrator /active:no
    • c) Close the elevated command prompt.
    • d) The built-in Administrator will now be available to select to sign into.
    • e) Restart the system.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Unable to gain Administration rights

    Windows 10 Access Denied - unable to gain administrator privileges


    It is my son's computer. He is the administrator so he can log in. However the programs do not run and there is no access to any folders. When using command prompt it gives a system 5 error. It does not seem to recognize him as the administrator anymore even though in settings he is listed as the administrator. I am unable to use an elevated command prompt because access to this is denied.
