After changing my computer’s password, I usually try to log in 2-3 times to remember the new password. Have you ever forgotten your Windows password? If yes, then I can understand your situation. We’re expected to make very complex passwords so they’re difficult to guess, but in some cases, we make them so difficult that we forget them ourselves. You are not alone; I have faced this problem many times before. In that case, I reinstall the operating system to access my files. But this process resets your settings, deletes you software and much more.
If you have made a password reset disk before, then you can easily reset your Windows password without losing anything. No one would consider the Windows reinstalling procedure is an ideal decision. If you are unlucky enough to forget your login password, then don’t get frustrated. There is a range of options made over the years that could help to deal with this problem. In this guide, I am going to use “PCUnlocker”.
