    forgot what the password is for your local account


    What if you are using your Microsoft account Shawn, and you forgot what the password is for your local account??? Long time ago when I was just using my local account, I never had a password setup for it. Now if I try to log in to my local account, it wants me to enter a password, so right now I don't use it.

    And using netplwiz to change your local password, how do I know which user account is my local account?? I am the only user on my computer, and Netplwiz shows me two times, along with a HomeGroupUser$ and guest.

    I am listed under group heading in 2 ways, Homeusers and homeusers;Administrator;Users ???

    user must enter a password to use this computer is turned off bty.
