Enable or Disable User Accounts in Windows 10

Windows allows multiple user accounts to be used. One user account is the administrator accounts, while other accounts are local, domain, account with admin rights etc. These user accounts actually help users to manage their own files and applications separately. However, you can disable an existing user account and enable an already disabled account. The following tutorial will show you how to do that. In order to enable or disable user accounts, you need to be signed in as Administrator.

Steps to Enable or Disable User Accounts in Windows 10

1. Right click on Start Button and go to Command Prompt (Admin). This will open your Elevated Command Prompt.
