How Do I Log into Windows Vista As Administrator Without Password?

How to Access Administrator Account in Windows Vista Without Password?

If you have forgotten or lost the password to your administrator account in Windows Vista, there is a way to access it without having to reset the password.

First, you’ll need access to another user account on your computer with administrative privileges. If you don’t already have one, create an alternate user account and make sure it has full administrative rights.

Next, open the Start menu and type “cmd” into the search box. Right-click on cmd and select “Run as Administrator”. This will bring up an elevated command prompt window where you can use certain commands that require administrator privileges.

Type “net user administrator *” at this prompt and press Enter (replace asterisk with any new password of your choice).

This will change the administrator password for all accounts on your computer including yours. You should now be able to log into your Administrator Account using this new password without having to reset it completely!

How Do I Boot As Administrator in Windows Vista?

Booting as an administrator in Windows Vista is a simple process. First, you will need to open the Start menu and click on the “Control Panel” icon. From there, you will select “User Accounts” and then choose your user account from the list of users.

Once selected, click on the link labeled “Change my environment variables”. You will be presented with a window that allows you to change various settings related to your user account; scroll down until you find the option labeled “Run this program as an Administrator”, and make sure it is checked off.

Finally, save all changes by clicking OK at the bottom of this window.

Now when starting any application or service in Windows Vista, you should be prompted for permission from an administrative user before continuing (the admin username/password needs to be entered).

This ensures that only authorized people can access certain parts of your system and helps keep malicious software out!

From there, choose “Add or Remove User Accounts.” You will then be presented with a list of user accounts on your computer; locate and select the one labeled Administrator (or if it has been renamed something else, find that).

After selecting this option you will be taken to a new window where you can set up or modify user settings; choose the “Change an Account” option near the bottom left corner.

In this same window scroll down until you see an area titled “Make changes to my account in PC Settings” – click on it and check off the box next to “Allow me to make changes…” This should unlock your administrator account so that you are able to access all administrative functions within Windows Vista.

What is the Default Administrator Password for Vista?

It’s also important to note that some versions of Windows Vista may require an additional security token if using an administrator account, so make sure you check your version before attempting any changes.
