net user John fadf24as /ADD
To add a new user account to the domain:
>net user username password /ADD /DOMAIN
Note that we do not need to specify the domain name here.
net user John fadf24as /ADD /DOMAIN
Rename a user account from windows command line
We can use below wmic command to rename a user account from command line.
wmic useraccount where "name='username' " rename new_username
Ex: To rename the user account techblogger as win7techblogger
wmic useraccount where "name='techblogger' " rename win7techblogger
Net use command does not have any switches to rename a user account.
Few more Advanced uses of net user command.
To specify user full name while creating the user account
net user username userpasswd /ADD /FULLNAME:"User_Fullname"
To specify that the user is allowed to change the password
net user username userpasswd /ADD /PASSWORDCHG:Yes
To restrict user not to change the password:
net user username userpasswd /ADD /PASSWORDCHG:NO
To specify when the account expires we can use /EXPIRES switch.
To specify if the user must have a password set we can use /PASSWORDREQ switch.
How to create a new administrator account from command line?
An administrator account can't be created directly from command line. We first need to create a user account and then add the user to the administrators group.
If you don't have privileges to add new user account to the system, you would get an error like below.C:\>net user John /add
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log
in if you cant log in
the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press
a certain key to enter set up press and
hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user
password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from
most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to
physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug
and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another
way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2
methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the
BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the
battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps
