    Forgot my password to access my PC, how to fix it?


    I was setting my new password for my PC and then after a few days I forgot it. Now, without my password, I can't log in to my PC at all. When I start the PC, my background appears, along with my name and picture, and there is a box in which I put my forgotten password. I tried all combinations, every one I had on my mind. I tried pressing "forgot my password" under the tying box, but a message saying "you need a USB device for this" appears. Sadly, I didn't set USB to as a recovery form, so there is no way for me do do it this way. I tried all possible combinations, even talked to Support Agents and I can't find a way. When I log it to my Microsoft account on other PC and go to account > devices, I see my PC that I forgot the password on on the list, but I can't change it and access it. I know my Microsoft account password and all info related to my account, I just can't access my PC due to me forgetting the password I used to use before. Can anyone help?

    :)
