I have been fixing computers for quite some time now, and have used various methods in the past to gain access to customers' computers when I have forgotten to get their password from them. However, Windows 10 uses a Microsoft account to login and my previous methods are no longer effective, does anyone know of a way I could either login to an account, or creative an admin account for myself?

Have you tried accessing data using a live linux disk? The problem with Windows 10 is it using a Hybrid shutdown that can cause issues with linux mounting the disk. I am not sure but I also believe if a person using a Microsoft Account to login then the drive contents are encrypted. A carryover from 8.1
