You might have observed that during Windows 11 or Windows 10 installation set up when you complete installation Windows creates two additional user accounts that are hidden by default. One is a guest account which is very limited, and the other is the administrator account. The difference between the created user account and the built-in user account is that the built-in account is an elevated account (administrator) and will not give UAC prompts.
Windows automatically generates this elevated, hidden Super Administrator account which remains hidden by default owing to security reasons. The built-in Administrator account is usually used to troubleshoot Windows and therefore should only be used during troubleshooting. Unlike the normal Administrator account, this hidden by default or built-in Administrator account runs all programs and tools with admin rights by default.
We have seen how to create a new User Account in Windows. Today, I will show you a way that will let you create a new hidden administrator user account on your Windows PC. It should work on Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 as well as Windows Vista systems.
