Windows 10: Need to create an ADMINISTRATOR ACCT but get ACESS DENIED

    Need to create an ADMINISTRATOR ACCT but get ACESS DENIED


    When I first converted from Win 7, Win 10 transferred my main ACCT: Patrick
    But, the boot time became so elongated, the net gave me some tips but to so, I had to use SAFE BOOT. But the old F8 would not work so I used the MSCONFIG. But, then Win 10 CREATED a new account using my email and password I had for Microsoft Live web site, DELETED MY OLD PATRICK AND REAL ADMIN ACCT. It took considerable time to figure the PW it was looking for.
    So went back to regular boot, renamed the EMAIL name to the original PATRICK acct as it had been deleted,
    They did give me ADMIN rights but that rarely works when you do some heavy lifting.
    This leaves me with ONE ACCT, PATRICK with ADMIN RIGHTS, not with full ADMIN privileges.

    So, lets create a REAL Admin account.
    Net says: in DOS mode, net user administrator /active:yes
    Wrong, access denied
    tried: net user patrick /active:yes
    Wrong, access deniedWhen I was converted, it converted the Home Premium to Home.
    Anyone know how to CREATE a REAL ADMIN on "Home"?

    Hi jagman, welcome to Ten Forums. This is from the tutorial forum. Administrator account - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. Try Option 4. Once you are in the admin account you should be able to create the user and rights you want.

    1. Boot from your Windows 10 installation USB or recovery drive, and open a command prompt at boot.

    I installed win 10 because Microsoft would not leave me alone about upgrading to it.
    So do not have a USB, Recovery disk and when I tried on this "current logon", Firefox when crazy, every time I hit REGEDIT, it added nmultiple tabs to Firefox of this site.
    So, can you advise me on , If I used the install from online from Microsoft?
