is it possible to find out what email i used for windows 10. i am unable to sign in and don't know what the email so i can try and reset my password. In the sign in part in windows 10 is just says "my name" and profile picture but i don't know the proper email. thanks for any help
If it doesn't show an email address on the sign in screen for the account, then it's a local account and not a Microsoft account.
Dude thanks for the quick reply but ik that it is 100% the right password. i removed my account on accident. It didn't even say are you sure you want to do this or anything
What you can do is create a Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk on another computer. Use that disk to boot the computer you are locked out of. Make an image of the system partition. If you have to do a clean install, then you can mount the image that you made and it has options to access the user files that are saved in the image.
You can also make a MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc and use that to shrink the system partition and make a partition to hold the image you can create with Macrium Reflect.
Or, for that matter, make the MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc, shrink the existing system partition to as small as possible, create a new partition for a clean install, set it as active, then do the clean install to it. Once you have everything copied over from the old partition that you want/can then delete that partition and expand the new system partition to fill the space. Just be careful to know where your boot files are before you delete the partition.
