  1. I forgot my Windows password to my local account, What do I do?


    So let me explain what is going on here. So I can get in through the pin but I have no idea what the password is. So I was trying to add my Microsoft account to Windows 11, I enter the password to my Microsoft account, But it is making me put in my Windows password as well when i have literally no idea what i had it set to. And I don't remember the security questions either, So I am having quite a bit of trouble resetting it, It will not let me add my account unless i have the local password, I can still get in through the pin however it wont let me use the pin, just the password. And I am hav

    I forgot my Windows password to my local account, What do I do?

    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.
