    Windows 10 Home Disabled Administrator

    Hi Folks,

    Well this user has put themselves in a sticky spot. New install of Windows 10 home,
    initially signed in through a MS account (admin user), decided to convert it to a local user
    and subsequently removed all admin privileges..

    I've done some research on how to restore/create a new admin account, however the home
    edition of 10 doesn't allow that capability. UAC is enabled and won't allow us to open to
    run any apps which makes changes to the PC.

    Kudos to anyone who can provide a solution on this one.

    Hello Proculeius, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You may be able to use OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to enable the built-in Administrator account at boot.
