How to reset windows 10 login password without reset disc?

Rohit_mehta33Rohit_mehta33 Posts: 1Member
I forgot login password to my Acer laptop with running Windows 10, i didn't have a reset disc. I can access via a PIN, but can't change password without the old password which I forgot. So, is there a way to reset the login password ?

    Hi

     

    Yes.  I suppose you need more than a factual answer. 

     

    I think you should create an install media, like a USB or DVD, and then try and use it as a repair disk.  So make a new Windows 10 install media, via this website...

    microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

     

    DUCKDUCKGO or guggle for this - /change-or-reset-windows-password-from-a-ubuntu-live-cd/

    about 60% of the way down there is some info on the W10 files (before that it is complicated, convuluted and confusing) to appreciate the difficulties involved.

     

    You can buy reset disks I believe.  You do a fresh install leaving all your data in place.

    You could try the Ubuntu way, it is probably for the likes of me and not a beginner.

     

    Search on this - windows-10-password-reset-without-disk.html

     

    So please tell us what you feel confident of doing.

    If using the PIN you login as an administrator, you can change the other accout's password. If you login with a Microsoft Account and not a local one then see here. If a local account we are not allowed to discuss that.

    As i know , using the disk to reset login password on Windows isn't the only method , 

    For people with high knowledge of computers , they have av lot of ways to reset Windows password , you could try resetting your Microsoft account's password and then try to use it to see if it works.

    Using the MS is a good way to reset password  , but for those who don't use MS , it is useless
    You can ask the NT password or CMD for help , they are free tools , and like the Recoverywindowspassword . Tunesbro . Iseepassword

There are several ways you can change or reset Windows 10 login password without requiring the old password which you forgot. Please refer to this page: https://www.isumsoft.com/windows-10/forgot-windows-10-password-but-remember-pin.html. I hope it can help you.

    You can unlock the login password using either freeware or backdoor. Here's a walkthrough of using Ophcrack to recover lost password in plain-text:

    Or use the sticky keys trick to break into Windows:

    Or try Offline NT Password & Registry Editor:

    I don't deny that they work ,but for Ophcrack,i failed the first time I used it,personally, I think the second method is easier to use.

    Yes, you are right. I think Security Questions, Windows 10 other login accounts, and security mode are easier to work with.

    Because Ophcrack doesn't work on Windows 10,but for the secon method,it does work on Windows 10.

    Mostly people feel embarrassed to admit the fact that they have forgotten their own Windows login password, but trust me folks it is quite an obvious premonition when your memory is spilling with huge list of passwords for various other offline and online accounts.
