How to Reset Your Forgotten Password in Windows 10

I am Farman Elahi, IT Technician of New Africa Technology Company. A week ago, I was finally successful in reset forgotten password for Windows 10. Before few days a call came from Social Impact.

To reset the password using this method, insert your Windows installation disk and boot from it. Once you are in the setup screen, press the keyboard shortcut “Shift + F10” to launch the Command Prompt.

Once the Command Prompt has been opened, copy the below commands and execute them one after the other. All we are doing is replacing “utilman.exe” with “cmd.exe.”

Type Diskpart Press Enter. Than Type List Volume press Enter.

On my system F: is system Drive. Check your system drive.
Type move.utilman.exe utiman.exe.bak press Enter
Type copy cmd.exe utiman.exe.bak Press Enter

Once logged in, you can reset the other account’s password from the Local Users and Groups window. You can access it by entering “lusrmgr.msc” in the run dialog box (Win + R)
