This article explores the simple steps to activate the built-in Administrator account on Windows 10, providing users with enhanced access and control over their system.
command = "net user administrator /active:yes"
subprocess.run(command, check=True, shell=True)
print("Administrator account has been activated successfully.")
except subprocess.CalledProcessError as error:
The `activate_admin_account` function uses the `subprocess` module to run the command to activate the administrator account in Windows 10. The `check` parameter is set to `True` to raise an error if the command fails to run, and the `shell` parameter is set to `True` to run the command in the Windows command prompt.
Upon successful activation of the administrator account, the function prints a success message. In case of an error, the function prints the error message returned by the command output. Note that this code is a simplified version and may require additional error handling and security measures to be safely used in production environments.
