    Forgot Microsoft account password. Picture log in disappeared after up


    Hi so my laptop recently automatically updated and I had previously created an microsoft account in order to use Cortana which was years ago. I forgot the password but luckily had picture sign in enabled. Unfortunately after the update the additional sign on options were no longer available and it's asking for my Microsoft password which I forgot. And yes I've already tried to recover it but I no longer have the phone number associated with that email. Luckily there is another account I can sign into but it doesn't have administrator privileges. So how would I go about resetting the password
