The most recent operating systems from Microsoft are Windows 10 and 11. Additionally, it has new capabilities and security upgrades. For instance, Windows 10 has a new way to access apps and files and a redesigned settings menu. However, a lot of users have experienced operating system problems and lost their passwords. On both Windows 10 and 11, Microsoft has thankfully added a number of options for recovering forgotten passwords.
You can easily reset your password using a USB key. On Windows 10, you can use the on-screen option or download the Microsoft option from Windows.com to enable it on your computer. On Windows 7, you need to update your operating system to access the option. After enabling it, you can use the USB key to access your account and reset your password. You'll need to plug in your USB key when you're at a PC or stationary internet connection.
If you are too late or do not have the system open in front of you, relax, you can still open your computer by resetting the password. Here’s how you can do it:
