    Password Reset Disc


    Hi,
    Have been trying to create "Password Reset Disc" on windows10 1809 . I fail to find "Create password reset disc"
    under "User Accounts". Has this facility been withdrawn or am I missing something?
    If it has been withdrawn is there another way to reset password should I get locked out or forget password.
    Thanks
    Rayal

    Hello Rayal,

    The "Create a password reset disk" setting will only be available for local accounts, and not Microsoft accounts if this may be the issue.

    Brink is correct but may I also point out that creating a password reset disk is no more effective than writing your password down somewhere.

    And a piece of paper is often easier to keep secure than a USB stick. As well as being cheaper.
