How to Enable Administrator Account in Windows 7

By | Sep 19, 2012

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.

Note: If you forgot Windows password and can’t log on using other administrator account, this trick doesn’t work for your situation. But you can still use Reset Windows Password utility to remove your forgotten password, and the program will also enable your disabled or locked out user account.

To enable the Administrator account to log on as Administrator in Windows 7, follow these steps:

  1. Open the command prompt with elevated privileges. To do this click on the Start menu then move to All Programs, click on Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator.
  2. In the Command Prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes and then press Enter.
  3. 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.

Do not use the Administrator account always for your normal tasks as it bypasses all security. Use a normal account instead.
