How to reset password? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was setting up Windows 8, and it crashed; skipping the part where you make a user account.
    Now it tells me to log in, and i have no password?

    Is there a way to bypass it, or is there a default password?
    please help.

  • I would recommend reinstalling the OS, since you just started setting it up and (I'm assuming) there is nothing to lose.  Hopefully you have whatever you need saved already backed up to some other location.
