    Child account password reset


    Hi,


    i created a child account a while back and dont remember the password.

    Neither i nor my kid has ever signed into that account. So, i cannot answer some if not most of the recovery questions asked to reset the password. questions like who sent you emails, subject line etc.

    This account is linked to mine as a family account.

    how do i reset the password?

    thanks!

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

  4. Child account password reset

    Help resetting password on Child Account

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community.



    1. What is the error you have received while trying to reset password?
    2. Is the child account a Microsoft Account or a local account?

    I can understand that must make you feel upset, and I appreciate your effort that you have taken to resolve this issue.

    Assuming you have already tried resetting the password from account.live.com, I don’t wish to suggest you with the same option. I would suggest you to
    refer the article Recover your Microsoft Account
    and also refer the section Tips for filling out the recovery form to recover the issue account.



    Hope it helps.
