Password protection in Windows operating system prevents unauthorized access of confidential and critical business as well as personal data. Most of the applications enable you to set password to their files, such as email clients, web-based emails, FTP clients, and more. However, if you forget the password, you can not access the file. In such cases, you need to Recover Windows Password using appropriate tools.

If you have lost or forgotten password of your Microsoft Windows operating system, web browser, IM (Instant Messaging) client, or FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client, do not worry. You can regain access of all these applications through a number of methods, such as:

  • Password Hints: It is an easy method to recover lost Windows password. This is applicable only for the Windows operating system accounts. Password hint is generally located on Welcome screen beside password prompt text box. It gives a hint only if you have given some hint questions when you set the password.

  • Use Password Reset Disk: Windows operating system enables you to create password reset disk for recovering forgotten or lost password.
