    Windows 10

    Reseting an account password from another account (same machine)


    Hello- I have installed Windows 10 recently (previously Win7). I used to have two local accounts, both administrators. I have forgotten the password for one of the accounts.

    Is it possible to reset the other account's password from the other account?

    Yes you can do that from control panel user accounts.

    You can change the other account's password from your account.

    Control Panel->User Accounts->Manage Another Account->Choose Account->Change the Password
