  2. Forgotten Password!!

    Thanks, Brink!

    Was successful in changing the password on the person's local account. But leaving the 2 accounts showing on the login screen will be very confusing for the 82 yr old person owning the laptop..

    As suggested, I signed in to the built-in Administrator account, and now both accounts are local account and Administrator?? Did I do something wrong?

    Is this way to stop the built-in Administrator account from showing on the login screen:


    1. Hold the Windows Key while pressing “R” to bring up the Windows Run dialog box.
    2. Type: net user administrator /active:no
    3. Press “Enter“.

    Forgotten login password

    My son has loaned his laptop to me. But he has forgotten his login password! Therefore I cannot change user on login screen.
