How To Activate Administrator Account In Windows 7

Many of you might be wondering where is the administrator account in windows 7 that used to be available by default in win XP. By default, the administrator account is disabled in windows 7 and you will learn the simple way to enable that account.

First, run the command prompt with admin rights. For that, navigate to C:\windows\system32 and right click on cmd.exe and click on Run as administrator. Now type the following command in the command prompt and you are good to go.
net user administrator /active:yes

On success, you would see the message as in the screenshot below and now your admin account is enabled for logging in.

Disabling is not difficult either. I guess you've already figured it out. Just type the following command to disable the administrator account.

net user administrator /active:yes

I hope this helps. :)
