Solved: There was a problem reading this document error on Windows 10
Documents have become an important part of our daily life, in recent times, we use…
The recent operating system from Microsoft, Windows 10 is a phenomenal hit with more than half the people in the world using the operating system on their systems. The biggest hit with these operating systems is that they have wide adaptability in managing the actual number of users using a system. The supreme authority of handling all these users lies in the hands of the system administrator.
Now there is a common misconception that the first person to create a user account in the system is the administrator, but no. The actual administrator is disabled for security reasons. The actual administrator needs to be activated once you log-in to the system. Now, this is the same applied to all the versions of the Windows operating systems. The biggest appeal with this feature is that the administrator settings in windows offer the maximum level of protection to your system from potential non-users who might misuse your data.
Now, you might ask me the difference between the super-administrator and the built-in administrator account. The major difference is that you won’t get UAC prompts when you run applications in administrative mode with the super administrator.
Now I know that you would be all riled up to activate the administrator account in your very own systems. Before getting to that part, I’m just letting you know that the below-mentioned process is the same for all the versions of the Windows operating systems, i.e. it is the same for windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
There are various ways in which you can activate the super administrator, there are the major three ways you can pull this off: The above can be done using,
Now, this is one of the most convenient ways of activating the administrator account. This method is easier than other methods. The added advantage is that this method is also shorter to complete.
Now all you must do is follow these steps:
You are now done with the process. Now you must make it a point that you secure the administrator account, you can do this by creating a new password. By default, the Administrator account doesn’t have a password.
Now the next time you boot up the system, the administrator will appear, into which you can login with the password that you created. That’s one way of enabling the super-administrator mode in windows.
Now, this method isn’t the conventional way of doing things. This involves enabling the command prompt dialogue box and enter the correct command to activate the administrator user. Caution is to be followed while typing in the command as there is a high probability that the command you type might be of the wrong format and might possibly activate and unwanted processes. The chances are one in a millennial but its best to move ahead with no risks involved. I wouldn’t personally suggest this method.
The steps to activate the super-administrator are as follows:
You need to log off the current user and once you get to the sign-in window, you can see the administrator account activated and thus login to the account with the password you created specifically for that account.
If you have the system administrator access or you are the system administrator, then enabling the default administrator account is quite simple. This method is exclusive to the system administrators and not the conventional user. The following steps will help you enable the default administrator account using the group policy.
Once you have done that you have enabled the default administrator account as a system administrator.
The above methods are useful in different ways. If you are a normal user of a system, the first two methods would be your first preference. But in case you a system administrator, then the third optional method would be the right choice of proceeding with. This enabling the super- administrator account has its perks as you are given the added responsibility of managing all the users logged on to your system. You can also by default remove the users you don’t want to or the users that are no longer in use.
Thus, the above methods would help you in enabling the hidden administrator account in your system.
