How to disable Adminstrator login on Windows 10 startup??
« on: October 19, 2017, 02:44:20 PM »
I have two Adminstrators login beside my User name to log in. I don't want to have Adminstrators login on Windows startup login when you see on the screen. I have try to disable them but no luck.

Hopefully will have an answer for this.

You can skip the password log in by this method but why do you need two admin accounts ?

Thank you to Boggin for this tip. And now it's all fixed just my Username and Password and no more Administrators on the screen.

Glad that worked.

I don't use a password on mine and just have the single user account so I was unable to check that method out to see the result.

Now I am stuck with having to type my password in JOHN/Administrators. I don't want that and just like yours -- a single user account. Tell me how to do this?

First want to say thank you for the link but it's a little different so I back out from changing the password. Because I looked at my Users Account and show me three accounts. And here are below:

John
Local Account
Password Protected

-----------------

Administrator
Local Account
Administrator
Password Protected

----------------------

ASP.NET Machine Account
Local Account
Password Protected

----------------------------

I see in the link that show me with the name on and look below:

Boris
Local Account
Administrator
Password Protected

And where is mine like above: I don't see like this in my User Accounts.

I am not sure what else to do and might be stuck with every time to type the password before get into the program or install them. I don't like that but what else can we solve this?

John

I don't know what that ASP.NET one is for but you could use the admin account to remove the other two and then remove your password and then create your user account.

The one is with ASP.Net Machine Account is for Microsoft Account which I have one.

So now we know what it is?

Thank you,

John

P.S. I think that I should remove my own account and create new account. Will that work with this?

I was wondering where do I look for " JOHN/Administrators " in User Accounts. Because every time I click the program or install an exe file and ask me to type the password. That's where I want to remove this. But how?

If you aren't logged in with the local admin account and you do something that requires that authorisation, then you will be prompted for the password or UAC.

This is why it is advised not to use just the local admin account should someone gain control of your computer - but I don't bother, I just have the single built in admin account and not password protected.

Because I'm only using the single admin account without a password, I get straight to my desktop on boot and when I want to install anything, I'm presented with the UAC which I just have to click on Yes.

Delete those two accounts using your admin account, remove the password and set up your accounts again without passwords.

Before I goes further and want to make sure which two accounts I delete? You mean the first two on message #5 with " John " and " Administrator ".

Let me know then I will delete then.

The two to delete are your User account and the ASP.NET one which are Nos 1 and 3 in your post.

You use the Admin one to do that as well as for anything that invokes the UAC.

Decided to go back to factory settings of my desktop and now all is good to use.

Thank you for your help with this above.

Also no more administrators to log in now just my single account. But have to update all needs for Windows 10.

Yes - that's the problem with a factory reset but it gives you a clean slate to work with.
