Password is a way of preventing unauthorized access to your computer and there are some cases in which people forget their passwords. I therefore took my time to find this way of resetting your password in windows 10 even if you forget it.
In doing this, we will need to create a password reset disk so all we need is a pen drive
STEP 1: Insert your pen drive into the computer
STEP 2:Press Ctrl+alt+delete on your keyboard.
STEP 3:Click on the option “Change a password”
STEP 4: Click on “Create a password reset disk”
STEP 5:Click on “Next”
STEP 6: Make sure the drive you want to use is selected and click on “next”
STEP 7:Enter the current user account password, in case there is no password,leave the box blank and click on “Next”
STEP 8: Click “Next” and finally click on “Finish” to complete the process.
PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT CREATE THE PASSWORD RESET DISK AFTER YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR PASSWORD SO PLEASE I SUGGEST YOU CREATE ONE NOW AND KEEP IT SAFE BEFORE YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD.
Now, we are done creating our password reset disk.Let me now show you how you can use this drive to reset your password anytime you forget it.
STEP 1: Insert your password reset disk
STEP 2: Just enter anything and you will see “The password is incorrect. Try again”
STEP 3:Click on ok and you will now see an option to reset password, click on that option.
STEP 4:Click on “Next”
STEP 5:Make sure your password reset disk is selected and click on “Next”
STEP 6:Enter your new password and click on “Next”
STEP 7: Click on “Finish” to complete the process.
NOTE: In case you don’t want the drive to be a password reset disk, just go to the content of the drive and you will see a file named “userkey.psw”, delete this file and your drive is no more a password reset disk.
- Don’t let others know that the drive is a password reset disk else they can reset your password anytime they get access to it.
2. Don’t always give your password reset disk out because anyone with it can reset your password at anytime.
HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN YOUR WINDOWS PASSWORD AND DON’T HAVE A PASSWORD RESET DISK? IF YES,THEN INSTALL FRESH WINDOWS TO COMPLETELY ERASE THAT PASSWORD.
