When it comes to Windows 10, there are two types of user accounts: the administrator user and the Guest user. It’s advisable to use the user account, but sometimes it happens that you delete the Administrator account. We have written this article to tell you how to recover the deleted administrator account.
The built-in administrator account
In case you did not know, Microsoft has a built-in administrator account in Windows. You can’t delete it, but you can search it and open the command prompt, which has all the admin rights. Then, you can select run in the search results, or you can simply right-click on it, and give a command in order to activate the built-in administrator account. This way, you will be able to turn the existing standard account and replace the user name.
You can create a new user account by using the administrator rights – you can even turn off the built-in administrator account. If you’re not able to run the Command Prompt, Go to the Start menu and click on, then click on the Shift key and then Restart it. This will help you boot it to the Windows 10 Recovery Environment. Then, you need to select Troubleshoot and go to Advanced options, then click on command prompt. You will have to turn off the built-in admin account.
The local security policy
For this one, you need to go to the start menu and search for the local security policy. When the command prompt is not working, you need to make sure that the administrator account status is enabled. If it’s not enabled, you can double click on it to open it. Then you need to check the security setting and will allow it.
Reset the Computer
After you’ve made your back up, you can resent your computer, and it’s quite easy. You need to enter the Advanced Start-Up options by pressing Windows Key+ 1. Then, you need to open the Settings, and click on update and security, then reset it in the Recovery tab. You need to remove everything from there, and then change the settings so that it wipes off the C drive, but only the C drive. You should follow the instructions and then reset the computer, but you need to make sure that it’s connected to a source of power.
The hack of Registry
Before you actually try this, make sure that you have everything backed up on an external hard drive. You should also reboot your computer into the Recovery environment of Windows 10. When you open the Command prompt, you should enter Regedit. The registry editor can be opened with its help, and you can double click. You can select the File menu and then the load Hive, and then rename it. Open the file after you select the File name. Then go below the folder structure. Click on the FDWord file to open it. Then you need to reboot your computer and create a new user with completely new admin rights.
