1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    Hi,
    I'm trying to follow instructions I found here on Windows Central regarding how to solve start menu problems with Windows 10:
    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-reset-start-menu-layout-windows-10
    My problem is that I have the Home edition of Windows (version 1709) and so there is no Local Users and Groups entry in the Computer Management pane. The above article explains how to set up the Administrator account automatically but not how to do it manually (for those of us who cannot access Local Users and Groups).
    Could you provide some instructions please?

    Hi,

    Maybe you can try activating an admin account using CMD. I think that's what I did on my old laptop (I was running preview builds so a lot of things were buggy and CMD was a lifesaver lol). Simple bing/google search will get you what you need.

    This seems to cover most of the steps: www.ghacks.net/2014/11/12/how-to-enable-the-hidden-windows-10-administrator-account

    If you need additional help or have more questions or details to share, please join the site so you can reply in this thread. See this link for instructions on how to join Windows Central.
