Is there a way to add the Win7 Home Premium "Administrator" user account so that it may be selected at normal log-in? I want to be able to log-in as Administrator without going the F8 route, as in XP.

I need to be able to log on as "Administrator" at the normal log-in screen, vice going the F8 route. I can find no option for this, not even NET USER at the CMD window. If this is possible, perhaps via a Registry change, I sure would appreciate the info. Thanks

 

Answer
Answer

The command

net user administrator /active:yes

will make the Administrator account visible at the logon screen.
