        • At the Windows appstarter of Win10, search for “command”. Mouse-rightclick on the item “Run as Administrator”.
      • Or:
        • You can also open Command Prompt by clicking Mouse-rightclick when your mouse is over the Windows appstarter symbol. Execute the “run” menu option and enter “cmd” at the prompt. Win10 informs “This task will be created with administrative privileges”.
    2. Execute at command.com prompt “net user administrator /active:yes”.
  2. Configure PowerShell.
    • Activate the execution of PowerShell scripts.
    • Open a “command.com” console with administrative privileges.
