There are easy ways to change the password of your Windows 8.

1. Insert the Windows installation disc or flash drive and boot into it.

2. Load the repair option.

3. Start Command Prompt.

4. Type and enter the following command to see the list of available users:
net user

5. Now, run the following command:
net user “your username” new password
Where your username should be in double quote and a space later, your new password.

6. Boot into your Windows and login using the password.

This technique works on Windows Vista and  Windows 7 too.
