I used the old utilman.exe trick on a W10 machine just last week. Here you go.
"Navigate to “Local Users and Groups”, scroll down to the affected account, and right-click. Choose the “Set Password” option, and choose a new set of credentials to regain access to your locked account!"
Is part of the long read at https://www.howtogeek.com/222262/how-to-reset-your-forgotten-password-in-windows-10/
Given this, I never pay anyone for password reset tools.
I am working on a machine given to me by a friend. Until now no password was ever required. I have been powering down and back up with out having to enter a password.
This afternoon however, I did a Restart. I was prompted to do the restart by Windows 10.
Now, the machine is requiring a password. I have asked the person why gave me the computer for the password and she gave me what she thought was the correct value. This is not working. Windows 10 is tell me the value I have entered is incorrect.
Is there any way to get around this so I can either change or remove the password?
I did try the link on the sign in page for Reset / Forgot password. It is requiring a password recovery USB or disk which of course I do not have.
Thank you in advance for ANY help you can provide.
