    I am a normal user and i am not able to install any software on my laptop.
    When i try to install any software i get prompt to enter administrator password.

    Hi risingflight. Welcome to the TenForums @risingflight

    Was your administrator account a local account or a Microsoft Account.

    If it was a Microsoft Account you could go to and reset it.

    If it was a local account you could use option 5 of this tutorial.

    Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10

    Once enabled you can change your local admin account password. Don't forget to disable the built in administrator when finished.
