windows 8 forgot password

Just to add... you can also try resetting the password online. byfollowing the steps below:

 

If you have forgotten the password for the Microsoft account (formerly referred to as Windows Live ID) that you use to sign in to your Windows 8 computer, you can reset the password using any computer or device that has Internet access.
  1. Open an Internet browser and navigate to the Microsoft  Web page:
  2. Select I forgot my password , and then click Reset your password .
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reset your password.
    When the password is reset, you will be able to use your Microsoft account with the new password to sign in to your Windows 8 computer. Make sure the Windows 8 computer is connected to the Internet before you attempt to sign in.
     
    I also suggest referring to the following HP document which has many steps that will help you to access your account when you forget the password.

windows 8 forgot password

I am so sorry to hear that. The traditional way to solve this problem is to reinstall Windows 8 or restore it to factory settings. As we all know, Windows computer has no password required to login default. But the disadvantage of these traditional ways is data loss probably.Here I introduce another effective way for you. It can guarantee computer safety and high affection. Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.2 works like that.
Follow this video, learn to use it to reset Windows 8 password.
