Windows 10: Can't access Admin acct., admin files are still there

    Can't access Admin acct., admin files are still there


    I just transferred from Windows 7, and everything worked except for the fact that the admin account on the computer (also the superuser account) cannot be accessed. The account shows up in the Users file under the Local Disk, but I can't access it by signing out and signing in; it just doesn't show up as a possible login option.
    If you guys know anything, please help,
    Thanks,

    Now that i look at this; I too am wondering the same thing; how do you enable the "administrator" login for the login screen?

    I see you got no answers, Erik, but I'm in the same boat (Windows 7). Have you learned how to fix this?
