Yes, you can log into Windows even if you forgot your password—even if there is no other administrative account on the PC. From a security point of view, this is actually scary news. But there are legitimate reasons to use the tricks below, and none of them will let a criminal log in without your knowledge (the password ***** ***** not revealed) or access encrypted data. Yet another reason to encrypt your sensitive files.

I’ve provided instructions here for Windows 10 but windows version 8 users should have no trouble following the Windows 10 instructions.

First copy and paste the address below in your browsers address bar and press enter:

https://account.live.com/password/reset

Then follow the instruction below. But make sure to watch the following video first:

Windows 10

Your Windows 10 user account is almost certainly connected to your online Microsoft.com account. This makes replacing a forgotten password *****—and arguably more secure.

On another computer, go to Microsoft’s Sign in page. Once there, enter your email address and click Can’t access your account.

Then follow the wizard. You’ll have to prove that you really are you, based on answers and phone numbers that you’ve previously provided. Eventually, you’ll be asked to create a new password.

That technique won’t work if you took the pains to create a local account. In that case, use the Windows 7 instructions above, with these exceptions:

  • Boot from a Windows*****and use that to get to the command line. You’ll find the instructions in my Windows 10 Safe Mode article.
  • The ease of access icon is in the lower-right corner, between the Power and Connect to Internet icons.

please copy and paste the link below into your browsers address bar and press enter

https://account.live.com/password/reset

Then watch the video below to learn how to correctly proceed.

I'am loged into your site, still need to reset my Mircosoft account.
Expert:  Michael replied 3 months ago.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure if I understand what you mean by "you need to reset your Microsoft account"

Do you have a Microsoft account? If so, are you having a difficulty login into your account?

If so, I can see if I can help you with that. But please let me know. Did you download the software? and do you have a CD-Drive or flash drive on both computers? Do you have a writeable CD disk if no USB memory is available?

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Regards,

Michael
