Help! Help! I forgot Window 10 sign-in password for the only account on my Dell laptop. How can I bypass or reset Windows 10 password without reinstalling OS system?
The sign-in password prevents unauthorized access to Windows. If you forget your sign-in password, you are prevented from visiting Windows as well. Actually it would be difficult to remember each and every one of your password. You may not be hopelessly locked out of your own computer when Windows 10 refuses to accept your password at the logon screen. In fact, with the Windows Password Key you can reset local account and Microsoft account password on Dell Inspiron/XPS/Alienware Windows 10 easily as long as you can closely follow the detailed instructions outlined below. It is not even difficult.
Before you start, you have to download program in any accessible PC (not protected PC) and prepare for a blank USB. Then install and run Windows Password Key.
Step1. Run the program and select “USB flash drive” and specify the USB flash burning from the list. Then insert pre-prepared blank USB flash drive. Click “Burn” button to burn a Dell password reset disk.
Step2. Insert newly created USB flash drive into your protected Dell computer. Then reboot your computer to boot it from the USB drive.
Step3. Choose the Windows installation from Windows Path to be processed. Then select “Change Windows Password” and click “Next”.
Step4. Tick “change password” and type your new password and select the settings about the password. Click “Next” to go on.
Step5. Your password will be reset successfully. Click “Reboot” to restart your Dell and log into your computer with new password.
