    I'm sorry rjohnson but that's not true. Windows passwords are pure smoke and mirrors and easily bypassed when you have access to the file system. XrayMan is on the right track, but there's even still an easier way.

    Easy to do, have fun. Just don't get into any funny business using it on PCs you don't own. Morals and all that.

    If the password could be bypassed easily, as you said, that's great.

    Local accounts are easy to get back into. Microsoft accounts rely on using the same password you log into online. You can always do the forget password process to reset it.

    In the shop, I use iSee Password Recovery (bootable).

    The new Advanced version looks like it also is able to reset the Microsoft password too, believe it or not.

    The sticky keys backdoor can help you break into Windows 10 admin account:


     
    Just a Windows 10 install disk is required. If you don't have one, you can download the ISO and make a install CD/USB:

     
    This method works since Windows Vista.

    yeah.  I got locked out of an old computer.  Just couldn't remember.  I paid something like 10 bucks for a program that was an ISO file you burn to CD and it unlocked it.   Let me see if I can find it and remember the name.  
     
    edit:  think it was iSee

    A computer user with 2 accounts may know how to use the work account to reset the password of another account (Locked account).
    I don't know if you got it.
    Or try below password reset tool for your Win 10 pc.

    If it doesn't work, the only option is to reinstall Windows 10 with the help of
     
     
    You need at least 8GB USB to able to boot Windows installer

    This program/bootable OS   https://www.boot-disk.com/index.html
    Active Boot Disk
    has helped me a ton in the past.
     
    We used it for work, and every day had to unlock local PC accounts

    Used Rufus and loaded the bootable OS on a flash drive ( it did not have UEFI support on the version we used)
    But you would run the USB in legacy boot, boot the OS, click the picture of the keys along the bottom and click next until you got to the list of account for the computer.
    From there select Change password, and leave it blank or change it, and then reboot the PC (renable UEFI boot) and in you'd go.
     
    Windows xp,Vista,8,8.1,10 (all the way to 1809)
    I must have unlocked anywhere from a thousand to two thousand local accounts using it.

    Wow! Seems like a pretty huge Windows security flaw.

    It doesn't show the password - just allows it to be changed or be removed.
    It accesses the SAM file to do so, but yeah,  I highly recommend bitlocker when you can as it stops this from being possible.

    Windows xp,Vista,8,8.1,10 (all the way to 1809)
    I must have unlocked anywhere from a thousand to two thousand local accounts using it.
     

    Wow! Seems like a pretty huge Windows security flaw.



    Not really. The Windows password was never intended to be secure. Once your computer is in the hands of someone else, it doesn't matter how good your password is. That's why drive and file encryption exists.

    It depends on the account type you want to reset password for. If the account you want to bypass is Microsoft, you’d better go to Microsoft to reset the password of the login email account. If it is a administrator account or local account, the best way is to bypass it with password reset disk you created before you forgot the Windows 10 password. You can also try other methods like reset the password with other administrator account and third party software if you do not have the password reset disk.
