The simple answer is "You cannot do so.  It is too late for that."


Worse news:  As far as helping you get logged into the computer, we cannot help.


If you need recovery help that does not include needing password help, start a new thread, provide the necessary information, and ask for help.



Password Reset – Windows Password


Unfortunately, we cannot assist.


Community members are prohibited providing any information that can / will breach the computer's security.


If you are using a Microsoft Account to log into the computer,

You may be able to get help from Microsoft.

Reminder:  You can reset your Microsoft password using a different computer


Microsoft Account – Password Reset

When you can't sign in to your Microsoft account

What else?


A licensed Microsoft Technician can likely provide you access to the computer. 

Be prepared to show proof of ownership.
