How do I log in as the administrator?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Stonebow Witham, May 29, 2008.

  1. I am running Vista Ultimate 64bit. How do I log in as the system
    administrator?

    I have tried to right click on the CMD prompt but there are no instructions
    for logging in as administrator?

    HELP?

  2. Right click, select Run As Administrator. If your current account isn't an
    administrator, you'll get prompted for username and password. If it is, you
    won't - just a LUA confirmation that you really want to do this.

    If you're in an enviornment where there are system administrators
    controlling your workstation, it's possible they've set a policy on your
    account that doesn't allow you to elevate. in which case, you won't even see
    the Run As Administrator option.
