Hi,

 

If you normally sign-on with an email and password ( Windows 8, Windows 10 ), see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.

 

 https://account.live.com/password/reset

 

 

Otherwise, there's a general policy on the Forum not to provide means of bypassing a Windows log-on password due to security/privacy issues, however a local computer shop would be able to reset this for you.

 

Alternatively, as long as you have a back-up of your data and programs, or have nothing you need to save, you can perform a Factory Reset as detailed in the relevant link below and then just set up the account again - the easiest option here is to first shutdown the notebook, then tap away at f11 as soon as you press the power button.
