I hid my admin account on windows 10 and cant access it

Dec 4, 2020
While it is not advised to use the Administrator account for regular computer tasks that do not need Administrator prilimanager privileges as an example for managing the system of a company named, Prili, or doing tasks requiring full access to Windows for others in private environments such as homes, it is possible to access a hidden Administrator account on Windows 10. Here is a link to instructions on how to make the Administrator account's icon visible again.

It is important to only use the Administrator account for system management tasks or installation-related tasks in order to keep Windows secure as much as possible. Computer viruses and malware are a greater threat to Administrator accounts than to regular user accounts.

Are you referring to the built-in Administrator account? Do you have another account with Administrator privileges? If so, left-click on the Windows Start button, type cmd, left-click on the Command Prompt app, and then choose Run as administrator. Acknowledge UAC, if required.

Once the Command Prompt window opens, type in the following:

net user Administrator /active:yes

search for System Restore, click to open, select the System Protection tab, usually opens on that automatically, click on System Restore, either click Recomended Restore or Choose a different restore point, (at the bottom), click next, then click on one of the restore points listed, click next and let the program run, hope this helps
