  3. Forgotten password

    Hi,

    "What to do if you forget your Windows 8/8.1 password"

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-do-forget-windows-password#1TC=windows-8

    If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:

    • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
    • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. For more info, go to the

      Reset your password
      webpage.
    • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.
    If you've tried these suggestions and still can't sign in:

    • If you have Windows 8.1, you'll need to reinstall Windows.
    • If you have Windows RT 8.1, you'll need to contact your PC manufacturer.
