    Administrator Account


    Hi,

    I used to log on to Windows 10 with my "Administrator Account" but now it's unavailable and changed to my email address.

    How to bring back my administrator account?

    Thanks

    There was no real Administrator account. It was a Local account.

    It should hve converted the old account to a Live Account.

    Your old user info is in the windows.old folder.
