Reset your Windows 10 local account password

Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.

While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.

On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.

Your PC will restart and will reset itself.

It is alike a reinstall. I did this several times on my Win 7 PC but it really takes time to get it working again.

I will put it on hold as the last option. thanks

Edit: luckily reset the password with this suggestion without losing any data: https://www.mobiledic.com/windows-topic/reset-windows-10-password.html

Yeah, I agree. Its' always better to use some rescue/reset password boot USB/CDROM.
