    Delete Administrator account files


    My intent was to turn on the built in administrator account and remove my user account, but found out that will not work for one reason or another of several. I have again disabled the administrator account, is it now safe to delete C:\Users\Administrator folder?

    Hello rdwray,

    Yes, it will be safe to delete the "C:\Users\Administrator" folder.

    It will basically delete the current profile of the built-in Administrator account. If you should enable the account in the future, a new default profile will be created again for it when you sign in to that account the first time.
