Various Ways To Recover Password for your Windows Installation

With so many different accounts, it is difficult for people to remember each and every password. That is why, we do find ourselves forgetting passwords of different accounts. And amongst the various accounts for which you may forget password, you may also forget the password that you had set for your Windows account. But to access your data, you need to log into your account. For this, you need to either recover Windows password, or reset it. There are various ways by which you can perform Password Recovery, and in case they fail, you may also use a reliable Password recovery software for this purpose.
Consider, you changed password of your Windows account, but since you could not change the password of the other accounts that had the same password, you ended up forgetting the password the next day. Chances are that no amount of scratching of your head helps you remember the password. But, without the password, you cannot access your data. But in case you cannot remember your account password, then you can try one of the following ways to reset or recover the forgotten password:
  • In case you had set a Hint Question, then use that to remember your password. But in case, you didn't or you cannot remember your password, then try other ways.
  • If, you have an administrator account set on your computer, then log into that account to reset the password of your user account. This can be done by opening the Control Panel, followed by accessing User Accounts. Choose the account for which you need to change the password, or remove the password.
  • In case you had created a rescue diskette, now is the time to use that and recover the forgotten password.
  • If all other options do not work for you, then use a third-party password recovery software to recover your data. These are special tools that help a user get hold of forgotten password.
Since a large number of such tools are available on the Internet, it is possible that a user first downloads the demo version of the tool, if available, to check the interface and recovery capability of the tool. Various user-friendly tools with interactive-interface are available on the Internet.
