    Users and Groups not available

    I read Issue 480 about accessing Admin account via lusrmgr.msc and was denied. I then tried Computer Management and also could not find User Groups. Attached snips indicate results of my attempt. Any assistance gratefully received

    The article did indicate that the GUI method isn't available in Home editions, and outlined the alternative command line method which is available in all Windows editions.

    Thanks. I assume "net user administrator /active:no" turns off the admin account?
