    Cannot access my User Account on local machine but can access Admin account. Need help finding password but NOT reset it as it will delete saved data.


    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    If you reset the local account password it will not delete the Saved data.

    I suggest you to back up the saved data and files from the admin account and try to reset the password and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps below to reset the password.

    • Press Windows + R.

    • Type netplwiz and press enter.

    • Select the user account.

    • Click on Reset Password.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
