Armed with upgraded security features, Windows 10 is Microsoft’s most secure operating system yet. One of the many security features is the login password. This security shield ensures that users get easy access while stopping unauthorized users from gaining control of your precious data. Now, what happens if you forget your Windows login password? Thankfully Windows has a pretty simple password recovery process that can get you out of this pickle.
Step-1: Go To The Windows Password Reset Website
Windows has a dedicated website for password recovery. This website takes you through an online verification and recovery wizard. Simply visit this website to commence the Windows 10 password recovery process.
Step-2: Check “I Have Forgotten My Password” And Click Next
When at the website you would notice that there are three options. If you can’t remember your password then click on the circular radio button next to I Have Forgotten My Password. Once selected, click Next to continue.
Step-3: Enter Registered Email And CAPTCHA
In this step, you need to enter your registered Email ID that you used to setup your Microsoft account. Once entered, type in the displayed CAPTCHA security code in the blank field before clicking the Next button.
Step-4: Select Option For Receiving Security Code
Once your account is authenticated, the Windows password recovery wizard will send you a security code that will help you to regain access to your computer. In order to get the security code, you must first select one of the three options. Select Email to receive the code on your registered Email address. Alternatively, you can also get text on your registered mobile number by clicking the Text option. Once done, click Send Code.
