You can reset password on Windows 7 with the software, such as the iSeePassword Windows Password Recovery 6.0 or the Ophcrack. Both of them are good tool. Also the Windows 10 password rest is good.

If you don't have a disc, you can use a usb flash drive to burn a disc with the above software.
or see this tutorial to reset windows 10

If it is a local account, then you can use UUkeys windows password recovery to reset forgotten windows 10 password. It will help you make a usb reset disk, then you can use the disk to reset any user account on that locked computer. For domain account, you can ask the admin to reset the password.

PS One more question. Didn't you used a Microsoft account? If used, then You can simply change Microsoft account password and then You can log in with new Microsoft account password.

The recovery methods vary depend on your account type. If it's Microsoft account, use another device to visit Microosft's website and you can reset it online. Regards to a local account, there are many Windows password tools can help you reset Windows 10 password from a boot media, for example, PCUnlocker, Ophcrack, Hiren's BootCD, etc.

If there is no important files stored on hard drive, performing a factory reset will also be a good option.

You can be absolutely calm - they will not help.
If you have not been able to get remember it or log in, better use some DVD or USB, run Windows and copy your files elsewhere and do new installation.
In future recommend to use the Microsoft account and do not have these problems anymore.

Your Windows 10 user account is almost certainly connected to your online Microsoft.com account. This makes replacing a forgotten password easier—and arguably more secure.

On another computer, go to Microsoft’sSign in page. Once there, enter your email address and click Can’t access your account.

Then follow the wizard. You’ll have to prove that you really are you, based on answers and phone numbers that you’ve previously provided. Eventually, you’ll be asked to create a new password.

That technique won’t work if you took the pains to create a local account. In that case, use the Windows 7 instructions above, with these exceptions:

  • Boot from a Windows 10 Recovery Drive and use that to get to the command line.

TunesBro WinGeeker is able to reset the password of Windows 10 local account quickly. Once the password is reset, there is no password prompt after login. Other possible means can also be found from its official website.

Give some feedback. What has happened in the meantime? What have you done? Is the problem resolved?
Or are you dead?
It seems, this person to be dead, anyway, there is no such member. But you all still keep teaching! The dead no longer learn anything.
