    Lost all Administrator permission


    Hello,

    I have lost all my administrator permission. I have two profiles but both profiles are standard. I have tried every option that were listed on existing forums. Every option leads me to a pop-up screen stating I have no permission. Are there any other recommendations?

    Hello SoFine409,
    First of all, thank you for your assistance. I have tried every option and had no success. I have no access to command prompt (admin). I have no access to run the recovery software.

    What happened to the administrator account there must have been one?

    Not sure what happened to the administrator account. A technician added a local user account because my original wasn't working appropriately. I tried to add another local user for the interns but I couldn't. This is when I learned I have no administrator account.

    Then you have to use Option Five in the tutorial: Enable or Disable Built-in Administrator in Command Prompt at Boot. That is, you boot to Advanced Startup from an install or a recovery usb, and if you don't have one, see the tip at the top of Option Five...
    Tip
    If you don't have a Windows 10 installation USB or recovery drive, then you can use OPTION SIX here to boot to Advanced Startup

    If you haven't already fixed this then this procedure will walk you through doing so - If the Admin prompt has a greyed out or missing Yes button but no password entry box, use the Built-In Admin account in Safe mode to create two new Admin accounts. I will use any questions / issues you raise in my imminent review of the article.

    Ha, ha, Denis! ( @Try3 ) You're too fast: having just read about your posting of this info to the Forums, I was just going to find that link and add it here. But you've already done this, sir. Good job!
