    Windows 10: Cannot Log In As Administrator


    I woke up this morning and found that I no longer have administrator privileges on my Windows 10 computer. I don't know when or how that happened because I seldom do administrator-level stuff.


    If I want to install something, Windows gives me a User Account Control popup that tells me "To continue, enter an admin user name and password."

    The big problem is that the popup only gives me a selection button that says "No", with no means to enter an admin user name and password.


    My Microsoft account name and info is my administrator account and I've never had any other user accounts on my system. I have my Windows startup login set so it doesn't ask for a password.


    I've been searching around, but I can't find a way to fix this. Does anybody have any good ideas? I can't be the only person with this problem.


    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Log into Windows 10 as The Administrator, not the Local Administrator

    Hello,

    I request you to enable built-in admin account and create a new account with all admin rights.

    Steps to Enable Built-In Administrator account.


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Select Command prompt (Admin).

    • Type “net user administrator /active:yes”.

    • Once you’re done, you can access your built-in administrator account by logging off your current account anytime.

    Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

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

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further queries, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.



    Thank you.

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
