    Boot from Windows 10 USB flash drive or DVD to get to command prompt:

    Then enable the built-in Administrator Account:

    Restart the computer, log into the Built-In Administrator Account and reset your other user account's password:

    Then disable the built-in administrator account. You want to save it only for situations just like this.
