Logging in as Administrator

If you want to log in as the Administrator of your computer even though it does not show up in the listing when you start up the computer. Here is the tip:

  • Hold down the [Ctrl] + [Alt] keys and press [Del] key twice. This will bring up the normal login dialog box and you can log on as "Administrator".
  • To unhide the Administrator account so that it shows up every time. Click "Start > Run" and type "regedit"(without quotes) and press Enter. Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ SpecialAccount\UserList

Unhide the Administrator Key by giving it a Value of "1". You will now see it appearing as an option the next time you log in to your computer.
