    have PIN forgot password

    been using the pin so long I have forgotten my password for Windows 10. Other than resetting everything is there a way to reset the password. No my password is not part of my Microsoft account.
    thanks Jesseb

    Hello Jesse, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You should be able to use OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to change the password of your local account.

    If that's not an available option for you, then you could sign in to another administrator account to change your password.
