With 240 million licenses sold out in one year, Windows 7 has been proved to be a successful product of Microsoft. Compared with its previous versions like Windows XP, it has many improved features. The built-in administrator account is one of the features. In Windows XP, there is a default administrator account after installation. But the built-in administrator account is disabled by default in Windows 7. To enable Windows 7 administrator account or reset the forgotten Windows 7 password, you can achieve it in 2 methods.

Method 1: Use Command Prompt

The easiest way to enable the Windows 7 built-in administrator account is to use the Command Prompt.

Click Start and type CMD in the search box. Right-click CMD and select Run as Administrator.

Click Yes when prompted to allow the Command Processor to run. And then the command prompt will appear.

Type net user in the command prompt window, and then hit Enter. All the Windows account user names will be listed. You will also see the Administrator account, but now it is not enabled.

Type net user administrator /active:yes and hit Enter to enable Windows 7 admin account.

Now the Windows 7 administrator account is created. To create the Windows 7 administrator password, you can follow the below steps:

Switch to log on Windows 7 with the administrator account.

Click Start, Control Panel, User Accounts and Family Safety and User Accounts in order. You will enter the screen where you can make changes for your account.

Click Create a password for your account on the screen. In the coming screen, type and confirm your Win 7 admin password.

Enter password hint and click CreatePassword.

Now your Windows 7 administrator password is successfully created.

Method 2: Use Local Users and Groups

Click Start and type lusrmgr.msc in the search box, and then hit Enter. The Local Users and Groups screen will come up.

Double-click the Users folder. And all the Windows 7 account will be displayed for you.

Right-click the Administrator account and select Properties.

Uncheck the Account is disabled; check-box and click OK on the administrator prosperities screen.

Now Win 7 admin account is enabled. To set a password for the enabled Windows 7 administrator account, follow the steps as below:

Right-click the Administrator account and select Set Password.

Click Proceed to go on your operation

Type and confirm your new Win 7 admin password and click Ok

Close the Local Users and Groups screen.

Now the Windows 7 administrator password is assigned to your Windows 7 admin account. It is easy to reset Windows password if you forgot it on Windows 7/XP/Vista and so on.

Windows 7 administrator password Tips:

1. Please remember to create a password reset disk after assigning Windows administrator password. It allows you to change your forgotten Windows 7 password when you are locked out of Windows.

2. If you forget to create the password reset disk, you can find a Windows password recovery tool like Windows Password Unlocker to regain access to computer on your own.
