Unhide the Administrator

Few people are aware of Windows XP's cloaked administrator account (called,
appropriately enough, "Administrator"). This account is invisible unless either your
system has no other accounts or you are booting in Safe Mode.
To remove Administrator's camouflage and add it to XP's Welcome screen, navigate to & select

in the Registry Editor, and double-click the Administrator icon in the right pane. If you don't see this icon, right-click in the pane,choose New, DWORD Value, name it Administrator, and press Enter. Type 1 in the 'Value data' box, and press .

From now on, when you open the User
Accounts window via the Control Panel, you'll see the Administrator account. You
can easily change its picture or give it a password. In addition, the next time you see
the Welcome screen, your Administrator account will be visible, along with the entire
computer's other user accounts.
