  • If you forgot your Windows 10 password, the easiest way to get back into your account is to reset the password for your Microsoft account. You'll need internet access, but it's the usual way to sign in, and it allows access to services like Outlook and Skype. If you can't sign in that way, you'll need to use a local account. A local account signs you in on your device offline, and doesn't link to your other devices.

    If you want to reset the account for password for local device then try below steps :

    • If you added security questions when you set up your local account for Windows 10, then you have at least version 1803 and you can answer security questions to sign back in.
    • After you've entered an incorrect password:
    1. Select the Reset password link on the sign-in screen. If you use a PIN instead, see PIN sign-in issues. If you're using a work device that's on a network, you may not see an option to reset your password or PIN. In that case, contact your administrator.
    2. Answer your security questions.
    3. Enter a new password.
    4. Sign in as usual with the new password.
