If you forgot the password in your user account and you cannot log in to your laptop, you can reset or delete the password using the default or built-in “Administrator” account. Unfortunately, this account was hidden automatically after you created your own admin account. To access this user account again, you can go to Safe Mode. Restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears.

In “Advanced Boot Options” screen, select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter. In the login screen, select the “Administrator” account to log in. Once you are logged in, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories” then “Command Prompt”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “net user [username] [new password]” then hit Enter.

Replace “[username]” with your username or the user account you want to remove the password and “[new password]” with the new password you want to use or don’t enter a password to delete the existing password. If the target username contains a space, enclose the username with quotes like this:

  • net user “[user name]” [new password]

After this, restart the computer and boot normally. See if you can now log in to your account.
