Enable admin share using the registry



Enable admin share using the registry

BY Default the Admin share is disabled in Windows Server 2022 ( in fact, in windows 10 and server 2016 onwards it was). It can be enabled as follows:


  1. From the computer you’d like to enable the admin share, click Start or Cortana and immediately type “powershell“. From the list of results, right-click Powershell and select Run as administrator.
  2. Copy and paste the following command into the Powershell window and hit enter.

Enable-NetFirewallRule -DisplayGroup 'File and Printer Sharing'
REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. You can now browse to the computer’s admin share using a local administrative account of the machine. For example:
