There have an administrator user account in every computer, and that’s so important for managing user accounts in every computer.

If you forget your main Administrator user account password then there have no way to recover it usually by using other account if that have not access ability as admin, bur if you lost the secondary user account password than you can delete that account password or that account name too by using an administrator account.

So just follow this step:

At first click on Start Button on your computer and then click on a control panel and then double click on  users account option then select that account which password you lost now select delete account and then confirm it.

Your account will delete for permanently.

Thanks

That would be easy but you need to use an admin account. If the current user account you are using is not an admin account, you can use the built-in administrator account in Microsoft Windows to change or delete the password of the other user account. The built-in admin account in Microsoft Windows is automatically hidden once you create a new admin account.

Since the built-in admin account is already hidden, you need to unhide it. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter. In the command prompt window, type the following then hit Enter:

  • net user administrator /active:yes

After this, close the command prompt and restart the computer. Now, log in using the “Administrator” account in the login screen. Once you are logged in, repeat the same steps to start the command prompt. In the command prompt window, type the following then hit Enter:

  • net user [username] [new password]

Replace “[username]” with the username you want to change the password. Replace “[new password]” with the new password you want to use or don’t specify a password to delete the existing password of the account. If the target username contains a space, you need to enclose the username in quotes like this:

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

See if this works.
