    All accounts guest accounts, no user admin

    Hi Nimita,

    Thank you for being part of Windows 10.

    Enable the hidden Administrator Account and
    try creating user account and check.



    You need to run the command from an elevated command prompt.



    To do that you need to do the following:

    a) Press
    Windows key + X on the keyboard.

    b) Click on ‘Command Prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt. Note: Click ‘Yes’ if it prompts
    for permission.

    c) Enter the following command to enable the hidden administrator account:

    net user administrator /active:yes



    Now create a new user account and make this account as an administrator.



    Create a user account

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows-8/create-user-account

    Note: This also applies to Windows 10



    Once you are done creating a new user account disable hidden Administrator Account.



    To do that you need to do the following:

    a) Press
    Windows key + X on the keyboard.

    b) Click on ‘Command Prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt. Note: Click ‘Yes’ if it prompts
    for permission.

    c) To disable the account follow the same instructions, but run the following command instead:
    net user administrator /active:no
