Active/Deactive Windows Built-in Administrator Account
Introduction to Windows Built-in Administrator Account
This Is an unelevated admin account that is created by default during the installation of Windows or is already set up for you on an OEM (ex: Dell) computer. This account can be a local account or Microsoft account. An admin account has complete access to the computer and can make any desired changes. If an administrator user tries to do something that requires elevated rights (ex: run as admin), Windows will display a UAC prompt for the admin user to approve before allowing the action.
The hidden built-in elevated “Administrator account” is a local account that has full unrestricted access rights to the PC. By default, this “Administrator” account will not be prompt by UAC. The full unrestricted access could be occupied using “Administrator” account that too when you signed in.
Follow the Steps below to Active Administrator Account
