    yeah because adding an administrative group called “Windows Club” sounds totally secure and legit.

    What do I do if the only user account on my system (my main and only account) has the “Run as Administrator” option disabled? All the solutions I’ve read assume that I can login with an administrator account, but somehow my one and only account was “degraded” and has no administrative privileges. How can I start as an administrator if the only “administrator” account is the hidden administrator account and it is disabled?

    I have the exact same problem, after activating, and then deactivating the hidden administrator account.

    You have to be an administrator, or logged into the account you created when you setup the computer. That is logic. If you are just a “user”, then find the person that is the “admin” who initially setup the computer. It does not matter if the built in hidden admin account is disabled for this. If you are just a “user”, then to me it sounds like your trying to add a hidden account on a system that is not yours… Also any initial user on your system (One that setup the PC when you bought it) will be an admin automatically… Only a manually created “user” account (non-admin) would not have access. Means someone set it that way intentionally. So… if your operating from a “user” account, then again it sounds like your trying to gain access to something that’s not yours. Otherwise you would be a standard admin by default.

    Same thing I mentioned to the other person with the same issue. You have to be an administrator, or logged into the account you created when you setup the computer. That is logic.

    Now I feel stupid, what parts should be replaced with the personal account info? I assume you should replace “password” with your desired password. But which is the account name? Is it “stupid trick” or perhaps “Windows Club”?

    Unfortunately your commands do not work under Windows 10 because they contain several mistakes:
    -> net user hidden password stupid trick /add
    (incorrect syntax)
    -> net local group Administrators Windows Club /add
    (there can be no space between “local” and “group”.
    The group name “Windows Club” must be surrounded by double quotes.
    You do not seem to use the group name “Windows Club” anywhere.

    I notice that you have corrected the syntax errors and removed the reference to “Windows Club”. Your recipe will now create a new admin account. However, it will not be hidden. It will be visible the same as any other account.

    The most retarded article I have read, ever.

    What you created is not a hidden account, it’s just another process of creating same account.

    > net user hidden password stupid trick /add is the last command line to ever work on any platform in this world. I suggest you get some lessons on command lines first then try again.
