    Stuck with a guest account - can't access admin account


    I am trying to change my user account from guest to admin as many things aren't working right. I have tried cmd -> netplwiz and it asks me for an admin password, but gives me no box to type it in. Even if it did, I don't know what the admin password is. I have two accounts set up - one as local user and the other is a microsoft account. Neither seem to have admin privileges.

    Can you at least tell me why there's no box to write in the password?

    Only admins can run that program and you are not admin.

    I have the same problem.

    I registered windows 10 to my email address, then created a new user to be able to log in without a password (Media center PC)
    Then I activated Cortana on the new user account with the email I had originally used to register windows 10 with and now cannot access the admin account.

    Can you atleast point us roughly into the direction on how to resolve this, so we can research it on our own?

    Thanks
