Sometimes you may need to log on as an Administrator in Windows 7 for some administrative tasks. As the Administrator account is disabled by default in Windows 7, you can’t use it. Here’s a simple way to activate Administrator account in Windows 7.
To enable the Administrator account to log on as Administrator in Windows 7, follow these steps:
- Open the command prompt with elevated privileges. To do this click the Start Orb then All Programs, click on Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator.
- In the Command Prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes and then press Enter.
- Restart your computer or log off to see the Administrator account in the Windows 7 login screen. Now, just select Administrator to log in as Administrator.
Warning: Do not use the Administrator account always for your normal tasks as it bypasses all security. Use a normal account instead.
