    Lost administrator


    Hi,

    I am having a problem with my windows 10 accounts. I had on acc that had all rights and i decied to make another on. So i did.
    Next thing i did is that i chaned names of both accounts and that is situation where i lost my administrator. It just dissapeard..there is no login form or anything about it.. and from this local account i cant access to anything or make any change in generally.
    I tried a lot of ways to fix it that i could find on the internet but nothing helps because most of them goes trough cmd and system32 which i cant access..also i cant access disk management to unhide administrator..it just says that i need my username and password of admin acc which i know but there is no box or logon that i can type them in..any solutions? Thanks in advanced

    Hi there, showtime. Welcome to Ten Forums.

    So you are viewing these forums on your phone while your PC is down? Have I got that correct?

    Since you have no functioning Admin accounts on the computer, the BuiltIn Admin should automatically get enabled if you boot into Safe mode. That will allow you to create new Admin accounts [the BuiltIn Admin is not an account that you continue using, it will disappear after your new account[s] are created].

    Use the procedures in If the Admin prompt has a greyed out or missing Yes button but no password entry box, use the Built-In Admin account in Safe mode to create two new Admin accounts - Wiki

    Ok. Have you tried to apply the fixes that essenbe and Try3 have suggested? Ask as many questions as need be if you want.

    ShowTime,

    The last response by Hippsie was written on the assumption that you were still in the Built-In Admin account rather than in an Admin account that you had made yourself.

    My apology if I caused any confusion. I deleted my post that Try3 is referring to in his last post. I enabled the hidden Admin account via the tutorial below, therefore, it may not be the same that Try3 has in his wiki.
