    Gmail PW recovery


    I have had a gmail account for years, but when I went sign-in on a new PC, it does NOT like my password.

    Yes I think I can get the PW restored. I am not sure how to do that. Can someone give me a step by step procedure on how to recover my gmail password.

    Thanks

    NirSoft has a utility that might help you.

    I’ve never used it so I can’t attest to it's efficacy.

    You could go to Settings, Apps, and uninstall it. Windows Defender will take over and may let you run the utility.
