    Help reset family account - kids password


    Team, i have been looking for a way to reset my kids password.


    I had only used that account for xbox profile as she is pretty young to use it anywhere else.


    all the forums only mention about using recovery form to rest password.. which is total BS form as there are so many fields where I do not have answer too.

    being a parent, is there no easy way to reset the pwd?


    I have seen the below reply to use the recovery form :: but its of no use if you do not have the details. I have not used this accoutn for anything except xbox. i entered the xbox live id and still didnt work... what are my other options?



    -------------- ..--------------------

    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. ------------------

    :)

    How to reset Windwos 8 Password?

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-do-forget-windows-password#1TC=windows-8

    • 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.

    Thanks for the links.

    I want to create the kids family accounts but it forces you to assign /create an email even after selecting no email . then trying to enter something that is similar to their name doesnt work either as i get errors 'part of reserved domain' even when i put total random characters.

    All i want to do is add the existing local kids accounts to the family list but it doesn't let me do that without assigning them an email? Is this correct?

    This new MS stuff sucks its just not that straightforward and they are trying to force you into email accounts when you dont want one.
