    How to Unlock the Secret Administrator Account in Windows

    The Windows Administrator Account is a useful tool you can use for finding and repairing issues — but starting with Vista, Microsoft disabled the account due to the User Account Control feature. With UAC, any user account can temporarily run programs as Administrator, making the Windows Administrator Account obsolete.

    If you want full administrator access for good, and you aren’t content with disabling UAC, then you can actually unlock the hidden Administrator account.

    Open a Command Prompt as administrator by opening the search bar, typing CMD, right-clicking on the Command Prompt, and choosing Run as Administrator. Then type this line:

    net user administrator /active:yes
