    I have been searching for a way to enable the Administrator's account because the only account had it's password go south. This process finally worked. If tried instructions from about 7-10 other webpages. I highly recommend this one.

    Can you tell me why "net user administrator /active:yes" works to activate the admin account on some computers, but others won't? This reg edit works, but I don't understand why activating the admin account as above fails on some machines. I've also tried adding administrator to localgroup & that also fails.

      @T Thompson: In order to activate the admin account using the "net user administrator /active:yes" command, you must login with another account that already has administrative privileges.

    Hey, i managed to enable the administrator account using your instructions but how do i set the password? Or what’s the password for the Administrator account enabled this way?

    As my Win 10 OS is Enterprise and connected to a Domain environment, how do i logon, as a Domain or Local account for this Administrator account?

      @You have to logon as a local administrator account, without any password. (At Login Screen, choose Other user > Administrator)
