Windows 10: User accounts

    When you use the "hostname" command at the command line, does the hostname match your account name as seen in "Manage Accounts"? Because mine doesn't match. The hostname I see at the command line isn't even in the list of accounts. I'm wondering if that's why my password is rejected at the command line when I use the RUNAS command. The password works fine when logging into my computer and when I change it through Settings.

    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

    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



    If you have any more suggestions/queries related to Windows feel free to post. We will be happy to help you.

    The Hostname is the name of the computer, not the name of the user. When you install Windows, it chooses a computer name based on your username. However, once this is set it doesn't change unless you manually change it. This has nothing to do with usernames or passwords.
