I bought a new Dell pc with windows 8.1 about a year ago and immediately set it up to log on without a password. Problem is that I have now forgotten the password. This is not an immediate problem because it logs on without the password. The problem is, if I log off accidently at any time, I will be stuck.
I have gone to "change password" where I am requested to enter the old password. It fails and I had hoped to be given a password "hint", but no. I think I would need to log off to get to the password hint, but I am not presently brave enough to log off. Can I somehow retrieve the hint without logging off?
I am hoping that it may be possible to retrieve my password from my "logged on" environment?
I have searched for answers but cannot find anything that relates to finding passwords while logged on.
