    Windows 10; HP Pavillion Laptop, lost password


    I have a new HP Pavilion laptop. In addition to a password, it normally just asks for my PIN which I installed at the initial setup. Today I had a problem, and when I tried to log in, I was asked for my password. I do not remember giving a password, but I usually just need my PIN. Fortunately when I rebooted, I was only asked for my PIN. Is it possible to find my password, buried deep in system? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Thank you Brink. That worked fine. I felt they would ask for my password before I could change it, but they just asked for my PIN.

    You're most welcome Rob. :)

    As long you know one of your sign in credentials, you're good to go to reset it.
