The Windows logon password is one of the most core passwords we have memorized and if you in any way lost ”FORGOTTEN” this password, the hole world can seem just out of reach.

There are several ways to find your lost windows password:

Note: Most of the ways or methods listed below on how to recover lost windows passwords are only applicable to Windows 10Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. All due some might work for older Windows operating systems as well.

1.RESET YOUR MICROSOFT ACCOUNT PASSWORD

The fastest way to get back into Windows after losing your password is to reset it online. But only if you have windows 10 or windows 8 and only if you use a Microsoft account to login. If that doesn’t describe your situation, move on to the next idea.

Since you use your Microsoft account as your Windows 10 or 8 credentials, and since Microsoft manages those accounts online, you can easily reset your lost Windows 10 or Windows 8 password from any browser, on any computer or device, including your smartphones.

2.USE PASSWORD RESET DISK

For those that are not using Windows 10 or Windows 8, or do but sometimes login with a local account, here are the fastest way to get out of a “forhotten Windows password” predicament is to use your password reset disk – assuming that you have one. You’ll know if you do.

Creating a password reset disk, which can actually be a flash drive, depending on your version of Windows, is something you have to do before you lose your Windows password, not after. So, as is probably known, this option may not do you any good if you never created one yourself before losing access to Windows.

3.HAVE AN ADMINISTRATOR CHANGE YOUR  PASSWORD

The next step to take in finding a lost Windows password is to erase the idea of finding it at all! Just have one of the other users on your computer change your lost password for you.

This method will only work out if one of the other people you share your computer with has a Windows logon account that’s setup with adminidtrator level access. One account usually is, so be sure to give this a try with as many accounts as you can.

4.THINK OF A PASSWORD

Don’t find it funny. It  may look like obvious advice and something i know that you think you must done already. Your first reaction to a lost password was probably to “think really hard,” and that didn’t work.

The trick here is to make an educated guess. Most passwords are most complicated and well designed ones, are inspired by the people, places, and things in the account holder’s life.

5.BREAK INTO WINDOW WITH A PASSWORD RECOVERY TOOL

6.RESET YOUR PASSWORD WITH THIS TRICK

 

i accept the fact that resetting your password with this trick might be a little bit harder than actually pushing a “reset” button, but it’s just short of guaranteed to work.

If your are downloading an unfamiliar software, burning discs, or mastering flash drives doesn’t sound like things you’re interested in, give this a try.

You will have to do a little command-line work but all you need is to have access to your Windows installation or recovery media and a little patience.

7.CLEAN INSTALL WINDOWS

Here is the option you really don’t want to try but It includes it here because it’s a certain fix for a Windows lost password problem.

A clear installation of Windows is a complete erasure of your hard drive, followed by a re-installation of the Windows operating system. I have some great step-by-step tutorials linked below but the clean install process is time consuming and you lose everything in the process.
