This going to be the 1st episode of the 5 hacks you can do in 2020
Well, We’re going to bypass the 10 local user account windows. This is possible in situations when you have forgotten your password or just want to try it on your friend for them to see you as a techie.
Over the years Microsoft continues to update the security patches and this has made it a little trickier to do some stuff that initially was a joy ride. So, you need to follow every step of this to get it right.
(Basically, we need to use the cmd which Microsoft limits its use unless you got admin password)
The following conditions must be met
- A flash disk of 8GB
- A working laptop
Go to Microsoft website or such windows 10 download on Google download and create a bootable USB media you can use Rufus or windows installation media.
If you want a detailed information on how to create a bootable USB stick then do worry click here for that.
NOTE. WE ARE NOT GOING TO RE INSTALL WINDOW!!!
You need to know the boot key for your laptop i.e. F2, F12, F9, F10, F11 etc.
For more information about boot keys click here.
Go to the boot menu and change USB for first boot.
Use the repair option and click on troubleshoot option
Click on system image recovery
A window pop up saying windows cannot find a system image on this computer
Press next and go for advance
And choose install a driver and press enter.
(So, we are going to trick this computer into installing a driver)
We are going to navigate through this computer to locate the installation folder
Click on this PC
We are going to look for a windows folder
There will be similar drives the other one will be
- Boot (X) ignore this
- System reserve ignore this
- Also ignore the removable USB stick
On my test I got it on local disk E
Open the windows folder
Locate system32 and click to open
Locate a file called Magnify and rename it to something else for my case I used magnify1 save and refresh to ensure its renamed. (this temporary)
Now look for cmd and change it to Magnify (uppercase M)
Refresh to ensure its saved
Close everything and turn off your laptop or desktop
Boot normally and the login window appears
It will require a password enter anything and it will say wrong password.
Click on the ease of access button and open magnifier
This will open the cmd
Type net user and enter
This will give you all the users on the Laptop
For my case I will use RATWEB
Type net user RATWEB (the user name that you want to login to)
If you have a 2-word user name you need to put quotes i.e. if the user name is RATWEB TECH then use ‘RATWEB TECH’
Make a sure to put asterisk at the end that is
Password for the user press enter
The command completed successfully
Close cmd and login
