How to Bypass Windows 8 Administrator Password

HP Recommended

I forgot Windows 8 administrator password on my Asus laptop. Now I can't login my system. I have no password reset disk or another administrator account. What can I do? Is there any way to bypass the forgotten admin password to regain access to my Windows 8?

Hello,

Once you are on the Windows screen (Using Admin Account)

go to the Start Screen

Type in NETPLWIZ

Click on It

And uncheck "user must enter a user name or password to this computer

Click on Apply

It will Ask for the password

enter the password

confirm the password

and restart the computer

This will resolve the issue

The bootdisk doesn't boot at all because my Windows 8 uses UEFI firmware.  I have to create a UEFI bootable drive for resetting lost win8 password: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3rDKT5xKpk

Try this method, if you have a local account:

Hold down either SHIFT key while tapping or clicking on Restart, available from any Power icon. This opens the Advanced Startup Options
Click on Troubleshoot, then Advanced options, and finally Command Prompt.
Type: copy c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe c:\
Type: copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe, answer with 'y'. Now your ease of access tools is replaced by command prompt.
Restart your system.
Execute: net user myusername mynewpassword, replacing myusername and mynewpassword. If your username has a space use double-quotes. eg. net user "Gaurav Joseph" balderdash. If you don't remember your username type: net user to list all the users.
Close the command prompt and login.
To revert the Ease of Access tools: copy c:\utilman.exe c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe

Google-search for "Nordahl password chntpw".

Download this ISO file, and burn it to a CD-recordable.

Boot your computer, and temporarily change the boot-order to boot from this disk.

Use the program to "blank" out the password for the locked-out account.

Reboot from the 'C:' drive, and just press ENTER when asked for the password.

Set a new password.
