Enable / Disable the Local (Hidden, Built-In) Administrator Account in Windows 7

Ways to Enable / Disable the Built-InWindows 7 Admin Account

Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the Local Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?

Recently I ran into an awkward situation where after disjoining a Windows 7 client machine from the domain, I was unable to log in to the computer. This was not because I had forgotten the local administrator password, but because the local administrator account was disabled (which is the default behavior in Windows 7). Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator’s account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password. After doing some research, I found the following procedure that worked really well.

Enable Built-in Administrator Account 

Basically there are 4 ways in order to activate the…

Paras Doshi - Blog

Out of the blue, a question popped in my head: “why do I click on refresh button when I am staring at my Desktop?” – I didn’t know the “Technical” reason and since curiosity got better off me – I read this, this and this and I learned that: It does nothing! Neah, it does something – it redraws the icons on desktop. What does it mean? Have you ever changed the view of the desktop and messed up the icons? I remember I have and If you “refresh” your desktop at that moment – it would redraw the icons on the desktop. other than this, it does nothing!

I just learned that and so I thought I would share that with you!

anyhow, I also wanted to see the “negative impact on performance” of “keeping the F5 (refresh) on hold while on Desktop”. See what It did to…

Windows 8 big app update…inadequate

10 Oct

My Ramblings

Windows 8 LogoA couple of days ago Microsoft let loose a major update of their “built in” apps for the Modern UI, formerly called Metro (which I think was a much better name by the way). It has to be assumed that this is the final push before the release of Windows 8 at the end of October.

The result is inadequate to say the least. These updates are certainly not very impressive. Actually they are downright disappointing since there are no or little real improvements to the productivity apps.

Here are a few examples:

  • We got conversation view (which should have been there a long time ago) in the mail app but we still do not have a combined inbox. If you have multiple accounts, like a lot of people do, you have to click or tap between them to read your email. That’s just as joke.
  • The photo app received…
