how to logon Windows 7 Pro as administrator ?


  • When Win 7 Pro boot up to login screen, I only can see the users. but at this point, if I need logon as administrator, what can I do? I know Windows XP, I can hold "Ctrl" + 'Alt" and press twice "del" key to bring up a login screen let me to change username. I tried same with Windows 7, but didn't work. maybe this is a simple question. but I am new to Win7.

    Thanks !

  • By default the Administrator account on the local system is disabled after installation. This is the case for all Windows 7 installations.

    If you enable this then it will show up as an optional user at your system logon screen.

  • right click on "computer" select "manage" look for the users and groups section, on the users screen right click on the administrator account and select properties, uncheck the "account disabeled" option.
