    Can't login...


    I had problems when using Adobe after effects (it said I couldn't save on d: drive because i needed admin privilege)
    So I used CMD and typed net user (myid) -admin
    and it worked and all was good but I restarted my computer my account had a password and I tried these:
    admin, Admin, 111111, 000000, 1111, 0000

    I used this tool iSunshare Windows Password Genius - Recover Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2012/2008/2003/2000/NT Password
    but as a free version, it didn't let me reset password, it only let me make a additional account with no admin privilege and any program or to run CMD as admin, i need the password of the admin account.

    Is there a default password for cmd's -admin? or another way of fixing this? it won't even let me run this program
    Windows 10
    so I can't make a bootable windows 10 dvd...

    Hi Yhalotharr, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    You have apparently understood the NET USER command wrong thinking that the command you used gave you some additional administrative rights. That is not the case, you have simply set a password for the user (MYID).

    To set a password NewPassword for user LarryLaffer:
    Code:
    net user LarryLaffer NewPassword
    That is the command you have used, meaning that now your (MYID) account has the password -admin (six characters, begins with hyphen).

    See this tutorial for instructions on changing the user account type: Account Type - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
