    If you kill the power three times, on the third boot a Windows 10 PC will boot to the recovery environment, showing this screen.

    Where you should click on Command Prompt. The command prompt will open, now you can carry on from step 2 in Option Four of @Brink's Tutorial I linked to earlier. At no point should you be asked for an account or password.

    If this is not what happens for you please describe what you do see, with screenshots if possible.
