How to enable Windows 7 administrator password through Local Security Policy?

When it comes to the built-in administrator account in Windows 7, most users know that this account is disabled and not password-protected by default.  As a common PC user, you may learn that you can use command prompt or local users and group to enable this account. In reality, you can also enable the administrator account through local security policy.

Steps to enable Windows 7 administrator account
1. Open the Local Security Policy window by clicking Start menu, typing Local Security Policy on the text search box and pressing Enter.
2. Expand the Local Policies folder in the left pane, and expand Security Options in the right pane.
3. In the right pane, right-click the Administrator account to select Properties.
4. Select the Enabled option and click OK, and then close the Local Security Policy window.

Note: If you want to disable the administrator, you can simply select Disabled.

Now, the Windows 7 built-in administrator account is enabled and it will display on the Windows 7 logon screen. Please remember to add a strong password to this administrator account and create a Windows 7 password reset disk after the password is created. Or else, you’ll have to resort Windows password breaker, a powerful Windows password recovery tool when you forgot Windows 7 administrator password without a password reset disk and administrator rights.
