    Administrator Account

    Hi everyone,

    I had upgraded to Windows from windows 8.1 to windows 10. When I was on windows 8.1, I enabled built-in Administrator account and that is the only user which has the admin privileges.
    But after upgrading to windows 10 that built in Administrator is disabled and none of the users are having admin privileges. Now what is the way to get admin privileges on one of the users or get the built-in Admin user enabled?

    Thanks in advance.

    Same problem here. After using my Microsoft account to log in to try Cortana and then using Netplwiz to re-enable auto-login, I seem to have lost admin rights. There are no other accounts on the system.
