I am the only user as Administrator and as such, I prefer to boot Win 10 without Admin password. Reset does not recognize my Admin to be able to do a reset/ keep my files. Does anyone have a solution please.

Use your Windows 10 install disk.

Win 10 would not let me create a Recovery Drive, I found a way around and did a reset, keep my files. Thank you for your response.

 

SOLVED

Glad you sorted it out. You can use the Media Creation Tool to create a install DVD or USB of Windows 10 should you need it in the future.
