    Reset lost Admin Password


    Got this message from my niece & thought i would help her with you guys knowledge of fixing her problem !!

    When we got our computer my husband made 2 user accounts. One was an admin and the other was not. I have been using the other account just because that is where I started saving all my stuff and now my husband doesn't remember the password to the admin user account because we hardly use it very often because we have phones and iPads! Is there an easier way to get the password then resetting the whole computer?
    Help her out guys with any suggestions ??
    Thanks

    Option 4 here:
    Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10

    Once you get into the built-in administrator account you can reset the password on the user admin account.
