A number of Windows features are reserved to certain versions of the operating system. Home versions for instance are typically the least feature-rich Windows version. Features such as Group Policy, bitlocker encryption, Active Directory or Azure Active Directory support, Windows Sandbox, Hyper-V are not supported by Home versions of Windows. Additionally, Home editions are limited to a maximum amount of RAM, only 128 gigabytes.
Another feature that is not supported by default is the lusrmgr.msc Snapshot for managing local users and groups on a Windows device; you can use it to enable or disable accounts including the built-in administrator account, remove or rename users, and manage group members on the system.
Simply download and run lusrmgr.exe on your local system. Note that this requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher, and that security systems such as SmartScreen may warn you that the program is dangerous. The reason for this is that it is not digitally signed.
The program requires high privileges. At first glance, the interface looks a bit different than lusrmgr.msc, but there are similarities.
