Forgot log in password - do not have a microsoft account - PLEASE HELP :)

Notebook 15-ba038ca

Hey everyone

 

So not long ago I changed my password to a touch screen password (making lines and shapes to access computer) and I have since tried logging back in but it has reset it to my original password, which I now don't remember. 

I tried calling customer support but apparently I'd have to pay for a service to actually reset my whole computer! Does anyone have any other solution than this? When I try clicking reset password a pop-up appears saying: (This feature requires removable media, such as a USB flash drive)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks All :D

 I'm running windows 10
