  1. Computer Password


    I want to Find My Computers Password. I can start the computer and all is OK.

    I just want to find the password without resetting it or changing it.

    I know the User Name by "whoami".

    I have looked in the registry under winlogon and looked for "default password"

    but it is not located anywhere in registry under any keys.

    The reason I want to find the Password is that in Chrome I want to see the passwords stored

    and in order to do that I need the Windows User Name - Know it, and password - Don't Know.

    Again, I do not want to change it or reset it, just find out what it is.

    Thanks.

    :)

    • Hold down the Shift key at the start of the boot process to enable the GNU GRUB boot menu (if it does not show)
    • Press ESC at the GNU GRUB prompt.
    • Press e for edit.
    • Use the Arrow keys to highlight the line that begins with kernel and press the e key.
    • Go to the very end of the line and add rw init=/bin/bash
    • Press Enter and then press b to boot your system.
    • Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.
