If any password is properly stored there is no way to recover it. A properly stored password is hashed, put through a one way process that does not allow using the result to determine the input. Using hashing the password can be verified, by running it through the hashing process and if the answer is the same as the stored value then it is assumed to be the same password.
That said, you can either wipe the password or create another account, but you cannot recover the password.

If you're logged in as an admin, you should be able to simply remove the password from control panel -> user accounts, right?
And then make a new one if you want
