Windows: Enabling built in administrator user account

Windows 7

To enable built-in administrator account:


1. Open command prompt in administrator mode:

Start > search 'cmd' > Right click on 'Command Prompt' > select 'Run as administrator'.




2. Enter command:

net user administrator /active:yes


Log out, and you'll now see the Administrator account available.



Note: there's no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should add a password.

Note2: to disable built-in administrator account, use command: 'net user administrator /active:no'.  The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn't show up on the login screen anymore.
