  1. Laptop Account Password


    Hello,


    So my problem is that I don't know my laptop password. However, I do know my Microsoft password just not the password to get onto my laptop.

    It has been a while since I've used the password so I cannot remember it at all and every time I press change password it always asks for my current password, but I don't know it so I don't know what to do now.


    Can someone please help as I need to access my laptop for important information.

    :)
