    User account how to


    Is there a decent How To, Tutorial or Manual for Windows 10 User Account available on the web?

    I need to know:
    How to enable administrator account on Login screen instead of regular user
    How to add Admin Account when only user account exists

    thanx!

    If there is no functioning Admin-level account then the Built-In Admin should be automatically enabled if you boot into Safe mode. You can then use that to create a new Admin account using the Command prompt - see Use the Built-In Admin in Safe mode to create a new Admin account

    If that does not work then search for Sticky keys trick
