Hey Neeraj,

I think you use Windows 11 Home. If I'm right you cannot use Local Users and Groups because it is not included in your Windows version.

Alternatively, you can follow the steps below to enable the Built-in Administrator account:

  1. Open the Command Line as an Administrator (Start Menu > CMD > Right Click > Run as administrator).
  2. Enter this command: net user administrator /active:yes
  3. If you see a message like that "The command completed successfully.", it means your Built-in Admin account is enabled.
  4. You can continue on the 10th step.
