    Elevated administrator name

    On the cmd prompt I entered a name for the "elevated administrator".
    Now I want to change it but I forgot what it was, and I need to know what it is to change it.
    How or where can I go in win 10 to see what it is?

    Your new name should appear under Users in the Local Users and Groups section of the Computer Management console (right click the start menu to access this).

    There is also a tutorial on this that should help you sort this out:

    Somehow I cancelled my local administrator account but I was logged in as an elevated administrator, I wanted to make the elevated administrator inactive so I at the cmd prompt I deactivated it. Then I shut down, when I restarted, administrator came up for log in to Windows, but I had no microsoft account and no local account and my elevated administrator account was inactive. I was locked out of windows I spent many hours searching the net for a solution and there were many people who found themselves in the same situation as myself. the only solution was to re set windows. I was able to access the windows re set screen from the on/off button right bottom corner of log on screen, but lost all settings etc in the process.
