As one of our common annoyance, password is something we have to deal with everyday. We have so many password including bank password, online shopping account, email account, etc. However, the most serious thing is that one day you lost your Windows Password. With Microsoft's improved security over the last few years, it became more and more difficult to change Windows password when operating system is inaccessible.

Lucky for us, there are several tips to change Windows 8.1/8/7/XP/Vista password. Today, I would like to show some of my experience. The best tool Windows Password Recovery is introduced below

1. Use Alt, Control, Delete&The Windows Welcome Screen


This method may works if you have set your computer to login via the Welcome Screen. Just simple press Alt+Control+Delete for twice. There will be a login box. You need to directly click "OK" without typing any user name and password. If that doesn't work, type "administrate" in user name box and press enter. If still can't work, this method is not the best for you.
After log in, go to the control panel and change your Window Password.

2. Change Password through Safe Mode&Command Prompt

You can also change Windows password in safe mode. How to do it? It is quite simple. Press "F8" while your computer is booting. And then you will be in safe mode and you are allowed to go into the control panel and change your password.
If you can't, you can open up a Command Prompt by opening "Run" and typing "cmd". And then Enter "net user [username] [new password]". For example, I type in "net jim 123456"means I set the password for the account jim as 123456.

3. Reinstall Windows
