asked on

management features

I just finished loading windows 10 from the total rebuild button and after doing so I do not see the users and local groups icons in management. I am trying to add a new user to the local admin group but the groups icon is not showing up nor is the users list where you add a user? I did not see it in features to turn on either.

Any chance the version you've recovered to is actually Windows 10 Home and not the corporate version that was previously installed?
This can happen if recovery partitions aren't removed before some corporate installs are done.

Otherwise try Win+R > lusrmgr.msc

it is the home version. I looked it up and it says you cannot see groups and users in the computer management but then how would you add the user if he does not have an email address and then how would you be able to make him a local admin on the box?
Because it's a Home install the first named user account is Admin - (both local and network)
I am just going to blow this away and go to windows 7 pro. Life will be easier and I will not have to deal with Microsoft and their account garbage. this will make my life easier. I will award you the points for the work. Thanks.
Thanks again.

Thanks. That did work. I am still going to re-image. The home version really is bad.

Thanks for all the help.
"The home version really is bad" - please note that with your win7 pro key you can install and activate win10 pro.
Thanks.
