Sometimes you may need to login 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 to login into Windows. Here’s a simple way to activate Administrator account in Windows 7.

Login As Administrator In Windows 7

To enable the Administrator account so that you can login 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 like browsing the Internet as it bypasses all security. Use a normal Windows account instead.
