Windows 10: reset admin password

    reset admin password

    How do i reset the administrator password? Ive tried all the ones Ive used before and it keeps telling me the password is wrong. Is it possible something is wrong with the user profile for the administrator? I tried creating a password reset disk using my flash drive; but; even that wont work as it keeps giving me a error stating there was a problem applying the new password or something. Windows 10 bug possibly?

    Well how else am i suppose to reset my own admin password then if no one is allowed to help? This is ridiculous that i cant get a simple straight answer on how Im suppose to do this because the system will not recognize any of the admin passwords Ive used before even with a hint.

    And Im not asking on how to hack or anything like that. Im just trying to gain access to the administrator account on my own computer.

    You posted the question 10hrs ago. If you just reinstalled Win 10, you are all done within 30mins and back like nothing happened. It's not like you have an activation process that you have to worry about.

    Next time create a system image that you can revert to if something goes wrong. It only takes 15mins to restore from image.

    Everyone understands your frustrations for not getting any help on this matter. But rules are rules.
    Asking about password help will never be entertained on most windows forum.
