I am trying to reset and/or find my Windows 10 local password. I setup the local password back in 2016 when I first purchased this computer, set the computer to auto-login and promptly forgot it.
Now I accidently logged out of my online Microsoft account and upon trying to log back in, the computer requests this password which I do not know.
I tried the following
net user Administrator [Password]
to reset but that didn’t help. I also tried accessing the credentials but Microsoft hides all password information there. Microsoft help says to
Delete everything and start over given I don’t have questions/answers setup.
I am logged in, have Admin privileges, and have access to command line.
what step can I take to identify/reset the local password?
