Its up to you how much you pay.

You mean you forgot the password ***** login to Windows 8?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I don't know the password

Do you use Microsoft account to login or local account?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I don't use anything to login. I haven't used the computer

Not sure what you mean. Is this a new computer that you are trying to setup?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No it's not new I just haven't used it

Never?

Maybe 3 or 4 times

ok, so you do not remember password ***** Windows 8.

Does anyone else uses the computer besides you?

No

Fortunately, there are a number of ways to get back in if you forgot your Windows 8 password, all of which we detail below.

Important: Some of these ideas only apply if you log in to Windows 8 using a local account (you log in with a traditional username). Some work only if you're using a Microsoft account (you log in with an email address), and some work for both. We'll let you know each time. However, all of these ideas apply equally to any edition of Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 you may be using.

Reset Your Microsoft Account Password *****

An option you were given when you first bought your computer or installed Windows 8 was to sign up for a Microsoft account or sign in with your existing Microsoft account. One really big benefit of doing that is that it gives you an escape plan if you ever forget your Windows 8 password.

So grab your smartphone, or any other computer, pull open your favorite browser and see How to Reset Your Microsoft Account Password for the full tutorial.

Note: You can reset a forgotten Windows 8 password ***** like this only if you're using a Microsoft account. If you're using a local account, your password ***** ***** stored with Microsoft online and so can't be reset by them.

Use That Windows 8 Password ***** Disk You Made

A Windows 8 password ***** disk is exactly what is sounds like - it's a floppy disk, or flash drive, that can be used to reset your Windows 8 password ***** you forget it.

If you have one, this is the time to find it and use it!

Unfortunately, it's that if you have one bit that will probably have you moving on to the next idea. A password ***** disk is tied to your specific Windows 8 account, meaning that one has to be created from within Windows, back when you actually knew your password. In other words, if you don't already have a Windows 8 password ***** disk, your chance to create one is over.

Once you get back into Windows 8 using one of the other ideas below, please create a Windows 8 password ***** disk so you can avoid all this trouble next time you forget your password.

Note: Creating, and thus using, a password ***** disk is only an option if you log in to Windows 8 using a local account.

Make [Educated] Guesses at Your Windows 8 Password

Before you roll your eyes at this one, give it a shot. Seriously try this, if even just to humor us. Guessing is probably the first thing you did once you realized you forgot your Windows 8 password, but were they educated guesses or just a few frustrated tries?

Yes, there are several geeky ways to hack yourself back into Windows 8 but before you spend all that time and energy with those, give educated guessing a really good last shot.

Considering that both simple and complex, well-crafted passwords are usually inspired by the things most familiar to us in our lives, think about whether your Windows 8 password ***** have something to do with:

  • your spouse's, partner's, friend's, or child's birthday
  • an aspect of your first, middle, or last name
  • a favorite set of numbers
  • a fond memory from childhood
  • a favorite food or activity
  • the phone number you remember when you were a kid
  • where you work or live
  • your pets
  • ...or maybe it's some combination of the above

Those are just a few ideas. We highly recommend that you read through How to Successfully Guess Your Own Password for some help figuring out your forgotten Windows 8 password.

Have Another User Change Your Windows 8 Password

If more than one person uses your computer, and at least one of those other people is configured as an administrator, that person can log on with his or her password ***** change your password ***** you from the User Accounts applet in Control Panel.

See How to Change Another User's Password ***** Windows for a tutorial.

Note: You can only have an administrator on your computer change your forgotten Windows 8 password ***** your account is a local account. The other administrator user can have a Microsoft account or a local account, but your account must be a local account to have your password ***** this way.

Use This Hack to Reset Your Windows 8 Password

The word "hack" might be pushing it a little, but there is a free and relatively simple procedure you can follow that allows you to reset your Windows 8 password ***** you've forgotten it. With this hack, you'll be able to reset your Windows 8 password ***** from the Windows login screen, without a password ***** disk or flash drive, and without any need for third-party software.

See How to Reset a Windows 8 Password for a detailed walkthrough. You'll have to use Command Prompt and do some things you may have never done before, but follow our instructions closely and you'll get it through it fine.

Note: This hack will only work if you log in to Windows 8 with a local account. Several other sites recommend this process for Windows 8 in all cases, but it will not successfully reset your Windows 8 password ***** you're using a Microsoft account to log in.

Reset or Recover Your Windows 8 Password ***** One of These Tools

If for whatever reason, the almost-always-work ideas above weren't successful for you, it's time to move on to some more "traditional" means of hacking into your computer.

A number of software-based hacking tools, called Windows password ***** programs, are available from various companies and software developers. Depending on which program you choose to use, it may actually find and show you your forgotten Windows 8 password, or it may simply reset it, allowing you to log in without a password ***** all.

Note: We talk about a number of password recovery and reset tools in that list of programs linked above. For the most part, the password ***** programs work for both local and Microsoft account passwords. The password ***** tools will only reset your forgotten Windows 8 password ***** you're logging on with a local account.

Reset Your PC

The Reset Your PC process in Windows 8 is very different than just resetting your password. This process removes all of your installed programs, apps, and even all of your saved data.

In other words, you get to log in to Windows 8 again because your computer is reset back to its initial configuration, just as it was when you bought it or first installed Windows 8.

To complete the Reset Your PC process, access Advanced Startup Options and then choose Troubleshoot > Reset Your PC.

See How to Reset Your PC in Windows 8 for a full walkthrough of this process.

This is obviously not a great way to get past a forgotten Windows 8 password ***** if all else fails, this will almost certainly work.

You'll have the option of creating a new local account or Microsoft account. If you happen to have a second Microsoft account you do know the password ***** you'll have the option of signing in with that.

Tip: In very rare cases, where you've both forgotten your Windows 8 password, and Reset Your PC isn't functioning for some reason, you can choose to clean install Windows 8 as long as you have a Windows 8 setup disc or flash drive available. Performing a clean install of Windows 8 accomplishes the same thing as a Reset Your PC.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
