  2. forgotten user password

    Do you use a Microsoft Account to login to your computer? If so, you can reset it online. If not, your options locally are limited to doing things like a factory reset (so your computer is "good as new" and you can pick a new password that you want to
    use).

    Here's a listing of all your options to reset a forgotten Windows Password.

    Forgotten Password

    If you use a Microsoft Account of any form to login to the computer, you can use the Microsoft
    Account Password Reset page
    to prove your identity and reset your password. You’ll need access to a phone number or alternate email address already known on your account to verify your ownership.

    • This won’t help if your computer is not already logged-in. You can change the password on the website all you want, but the computer won’t “know” the new password yet, so you’ll need to use your older password to login. If you don’t know that and are still
      stuck, read on to see how to force reset the password.
    If that fails, any administrator-level user can reset other user’s passwords on the computer. If you have another admin-level user on the computer, login to the account, then go to the Control Panel to reset
    the forgotten account’s password using
    these instructions here
    .
