    Reset Windows 10 Administrator Account to default

    So I've had some issues with my Administrator account but not for the others where it mentioned explorer.exe interface was not supported and all of my other programs lost his functionality (Skype,Games,Microsoft Edge). I did some research on some sites about telling me I could have corrupted registries and did the /sfc scannow and tried a lot of things but it did not work in the end and I'd like to know how could I reset my Admin account back to his default registries and settings. I tried doing exactly as shawn described in here Built-in Administrator Account - Reset to Default but that did not work.

    And as for the restore and backup unfortunately I did not made one before this happened

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Tsundere, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Unfortunately, that'll only reset the profile for the built-in Administrator account, and not the account itself.

    In your situation, you might see if doing a repair install may help without losing anything.
