More useful WIN10 tips

To enable the Windows 10 administrator account do the following:

  1. Tap on the Windows-key. This should open the start menu or bring you to the Start Screen interface depending on how Windows 10 is configured on the system.
  2. Type cmd and wait for the results to be displayed.
  3. Right-click no the Command Prompt result and select “run as administrator” from the context menu.
  4. Run the command net user to display a list of all user accounts on the system.
  5. To activate the inactive administrator account, run the command net user administrator /active:yes
  6. If you want to enable the guest account as well run the command net user guest /active:yes

The administrator account is active now which means that you can sign in to the system using it. It is not password protected by default which means that anyone with access to the system can use it to sign in to it.

It is highly recommended to protect it with a password. This can also be done on the command line:

  1. Type net user administrator * and hit enter.
  2. You get a password prompt. Type the desired password and again when you are asked to type it a second time for confirmation.

To disable accounts at any time, use the following command:

  1. On an elevated command prompt: net user administrator /active:no

Other commands of interested are:

  1. Net user administrator – Displays information about the user account on the command line.
  2. Net user username /delete – Deletes username on the system. This does not work with built-in accounts.

AlienWare PC

Now that I have had some time AKA not being so lazy, I booted up my spare PC to get it all patched up. You really do NOT appreciate SSD’s till you work with a PC that doesn’t have it. Took over an hour to scan this platter drive when it took less than 20 mins to do the same on my pain pc. What a difference!

Anyways sitting here watching it update, its at 38%……forever.

One thing I am glad I installed and found was “Microsoft windows without borders” app that lets to move your mouse from one PC to another.

UPDATE: 11/27/16 4:31 AM –>  OMG the update is done…..finally…took like 3 hours…I hadn’t updated this pc in over a year.

UPDATE 11/27/16 5:31 AM –>  Finally done..sheesh.

Thanksgiving 

Well it’s thanksgiving here at my house. Wife cooked all day, I ate too much (per usual).

This year though we are without friends, I might be paranoid but I am starting to think he is avoiding me.

To set the tone of above, it was one of those weekends where I was going to the movies with Jason and I asked if he got the tickets, he blasted me with why didn’t I get the tickets.

My reply was why didn’t he say before hand so I could have gotten them? I mean why didn’t he just say something if he was bothered by it?

Anyways that kind of deflated the desire to go to the movies with him. Next thing he did was cancel thanksgiving with me. So I am starting to feel like he doesn’t want to hang out with me anymore.

I really don’t know what to do about that.

Movie Ratings….

You know its really hard to understand why a movie fails when you see this type of thing:

2016-11-01-03_43_24-suicide-squad-dvd-release-date-december-13-2016

And then you see this:

2016-11-01-03_52_09-suicide-squad-dvd-release-date-december-13-2016

THE Number 1 requested DVD title. Sadly this isn’t coming out till December. Super lame. I guess movie failures means come out later?

–> UPDATE: 11/24/2016 04:33AM:  Well looks like it “came” out earlier than expected. Was a decent movie over all. Watching it a 2nd time started to see the flaws in the movie. Like the guy who can scale anything…how is that a super hero? I mean I know that’s not the only thing but that’s the one that sticks out the most. I guess he was the equivalent to the red shirt guy on Star Trek, you know he was the one to get off’ed.
