Relative called me (cross country) with a problem.  He had to go into the hospital and changed the admin password of his Win 10 system.  After surgery and an extended stay he has forgotten the password and can't get in.

 

How can this  noob reset or recover the admin password?

 

Thanks.

Response on this issue may be slow or not forth coming, it is not the policy of this board to help with passwords as we cannot verify ownership of the machine.


Honesty & Integrity Above All!

Microsoft policy about lost or forgotten passwords

This article describes the Microsoft policy about missing, lost, forgotten, or incorrect passwords....Some third-party companies claim to be able to circumvent passwords that have been applied to files and features that Microsoft programs use. For legal reasons, we cannot recommend or endorse any one of these companies. If you want help to break or to reset a password, you can locate and contact a third-party company for this help. You use such third-party products and services at your own risk.
