    What has to be done for enabling built-in administrator account on Windows 7?

    It is quite annoying to select ‘Run as Administrator’ option each time for frequently running programs. I am in need to enable built-in administrator account on my laptop running on Windows 7 for avoiding this. What should I do for that?

    Press the ‘Start’ button visible on the bottom part of the desktop. Once you can see the start search box, type cmd into it. Check the search results and right click on ‘cmd’ afterwards. Click the ‘Run as Administrator’ option from the menu appears on the screen. Type the command, net user administrator /active:yes into the command prompt and press the ‘Enter’ key. Then, enter net user administrator <Password> into the command prompt and hit the ‘Enter’ key again. You need to use the password set up for administrator account in the place of <Password> tag. Then, type exit into the command prompt before pressing the ‘Enter’ key and log off from user account you used currently.
