How To Recover Windows 10 Password
We have all done it before. You sit down to log into your Windows machine, type in what you think the password is, and bang, you realize you forgot what it was! You try hard to try different combinations of letters and numbers to see what fits, but nothing works. What are you doing now?
Fortunately, the process of recovering your password in Windows 10 is very similar to that of Windows 8 and later, albeit with a few minor tweaks. Here's how you can retrieve your Microsoft Live 10 login, as well as the credentials of any other registered users on the local machine.
Use the password reset tool for Microsoft Live accounts
The first (and most obvious) solution available out of the box is to use the standard password reset feature available on Microsoft's password reset website. There you will find three options, and for this particular case, you will want to follow the "I forgot my password" selection if you are trying to recover any account that is linked to your online identity.
Once you have completed these steps, you will be greeted with the generally familiar recovery process that most major companies will use when trying to verify that you really are who you say you are. If you have registered an external email or cell phone number with your account, you can receive a code that will open your account without any additional hassle.
