Well, the worst news is that you have reached an ugly impact where you can finally accept that you no longer remember your password.

    This can be a furious and despondent situation especially if you wanted to use your computer for some emergency task. In addition, without entering the correct password, you won’t be able to access any data contained inside your system. So, you must be wondering what to do now and how to bypass Windows 7/8/10 password.

    Step 2. Windows will load its files automatically upon startup and a new installation window will appear.

    Step 3. Click on “Install Now” and customize the settings according to your requirement.

    Step 4. Finally format the PC and re-install Windows in your C drive and the password will be automatically removed.

    Cons –

    • All data from your primary disk will be permanently removed.
    • Frequent Windows installation will cause data scratch.
    Solution #2: Reset Windows 7/8/10 password from Guest account

    If you have setup a guest account for your computer then changing password of your main account will be incredibly easy if you could simply follow these below steps –

    Step 1. First turn on your computer and enter into your PC via guest account. Usually guest accounts do not require any password to sign in.

    Step 2. Right-click on “My Computer” and click on “Manage” to open the computer management application.

    Step 3. Select “Local Users and Groups” from the left sidebar option and then click on “Users”.

    Step 4. It will show all the accounts registered on your computer. Simply right-click on the account that is currently locked and choose “Set Password”. Enter the password twice and apply the changes.

    Now reboot your PC and you should be able to logon using the new password.
