Default Activate Windows’ Hidden, Master Admin Account

Activate Windows’ Hidden, Master Admin Account

Windows’ user rights can be confusing and frustrating. Whether signed in with an administrator-level user account or evoking the Run as administrator setting, you can still run into insufficient-rights warnings.

But Windows’ built-in, separate Administrator account gives you unfettered access to virtually all parts of your system setup — once you know how to access it.

Many Windows users don’t know this account exists, primarily because it’s usually hidden and inactive by default. Here’s how to enable the “master” administrator account — and use it to streamline heavy-duty system repairs, problem-solving, and maintenance tasks in Win8, Win7, and Vista.
