So for that today I am going to tell you about 2 simple and sweet methods which will help you to Reset Password On Windows. These methods will work on any windows.
Best Methods To Reset Password On Windows
1. By Using Password Reset Disk
This method is one of the easiest methods to reset your forgotten password. There is a link below which is a procedure of how you can create a reset disk and use it to reset windows password. One thing is you need to know that this disk will work only on that system in which it is created. It won’t work on another one.
2. By Hacking Ease of Access Button
If you don’t have a third party software or a password reset disk, then this popular method is the best one you can use to reset password. All you need to do is insert your windows installation disk and make a boot from it. Once the setup screen is open in front of you just launch the command prompt by keyboard shortcut – Shift+F10.
After that the command prompt is on your screen now. Just copy paste the commands below on the command prompt and execute them. This will replace the utilman.exe with cmd.exe.
move c:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe c:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe.bak
copy c:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe c:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe
Now exit the installation screen and it will restart your system. When you will reach the windows login screen just click on the Ease of Access button at the bottom right corner. As a result, the command prompt will launch. Now again use the commands below on the command prompt and this action will replace your old username to the new one. For example, I am using my username as krishna.
net user <username> /add
net localgroup administrators <username> /add
By doing as I said you will get the new account with the new username. Just restart your system and login with your new account to your windows.
After logging in, just change or reset your password by Local users and group windows. Enter lusrmgr.msc in the run dialog box (Window+R) to access local users and group windows.
