Option 2: Bypass Windows 10 Login and Forgotten Password

If you’ve ever forgotten Windows password and none of the usual tricks work to get you back into your Windows 10 computer, then a boot CD like PCUnlocker is a must. PCUnlocker is the easiest tool that allows you to bypass login password on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and XP.

Step 1.  When you’re totally locked out of your own PC, you need to use an alternative PC to make a boot disk. Download the ISO image of PCUnlocker, and burn it onto an empty CD or USB flash drive.

Step 3. Choose the account you’ve forgotten the password of, and click on Reset Password button.


Step 4. You’ll see a pop-up window that asks you to enter a new password you want to use for your account. After typing a password, go ahead and click OK.
