No Administrator Account On New PC

I brought up my PC with Windows 11 home about a week ago and I am gradually bringing in various features and software.

I was trying to do something that needed an Administrator account. In the past, the first user was, by default, the Administrator.

I can't see things like "family and users" under settings since I am not the admin. I have looked online, and most suggestions assume I am already the administrator. I have also tried RUN and PowerShell (per online articles) with the command: Get-LocalUser -Name “Administrator” | Enable-LocalUser, but I am denied. It feels like a Catch-22.
