  1. No yes button or option to type in the administrator password when asked for it


    Hi there,


    I know similar questions have been asked in regards to the lack of a yes option when asked for the administrator password but I've tried a number of methods and still haven't gotten anywhere.


    I'm not even given the option to try and type in the administrator password.


    I don't know the administrator password for my laptop and I'm trying to recover it.


    There is only one account user login available on the laptop and this account doesn't have any administrator privileges.


    Any help would be great. Thank you

    :)

    • Click on Finish.

    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.

  4. No yes button or option to type in the administrator password when asked for it

    Boot into Windows as administrator

    Select other user and type administrator and the corresponding password?

    You could try to Google before asking everything.
