    W7 Pro - Lost PW user left co - How to Change PW then update to W10? Thank you!


    Have an elderly Dell Latitude 5420 i5. It's original user left the company so we don't know the account details or PW. It turns on fine and get's to the login screen at which point we are stuck with no pw. Any suggestions how to bypass or change it - then upgrade to W10. Can we just buy a W10 disc and would it override the present settings? We don't need any data on the laptop so a total wipe is fine.

    :)

  2. W10 pw incorrect

    Yesterday all day i was able to log in to my computer with a pw that has ALWAYS been the password. Suddenly, when i went to log back in after it went yo sleep it started saying "that pw is incorrect. Make sure you are using thr pw for you MS account. You
    xan always change it at..." so, i went and changed it. Now neither pw works. I did nothing and changed no settings nor installed any updates that i am aware of. Tried to do a system restore and even with that i need a pw and none of mine work. Please help.

  3. w10 change account user name and pw

    Hello, i just format my computer for the first time, and w10 by deafault enter my e-mail as my account name and a PIN. I didn't even want that, so i did it cuz i had no other way of starting w10, i "knew" i could change later, but as i see i cant.

    My windows edition is w10 Home, version 1909.

    I saw many tutorials on how to change account user name and pw on my w10 when i start the pc. But i dont have access to many features even when i have the lastest version.

    I really would like to change this setting cuz makes no sense having and it is not even secure!

    Please if you even any details about my w10 contact me, thank you.

    Win 10 Pro will not accept changed pw

    I changed my win pw using this:

    cmd

    ran as admin

    net user <name> PwDpassword

    win accepted change

    now it is telling me: YOUR PASSWORD WAS CHANGED ON ANOTHER DEVICE. YOU MUST SIGN IN TO THIS DEVICE ONCE WITH YOUR NEW PASSWORD, THEN YOU CAN SIGN IN WITH YOUR PIN.

    I know the PIN and the new PW, when I enter the changed PW it tells me incorrect pw

    HELP, please
