With the growing security consciousness for modern people, they are busy to remember their bank numbers, names of people, phone numbers, social security numbers and dozens of others things. Who has time to remember their Windows password? But when they lost Windows password, they feel that the world is coming to an end. Don't fret; you can definitely resume access with a variety of techniques.

Here I would like to share some ways to help you find lost Windows password:

1. It is smart and cautious for you to create a password reset disk before you lose your Windows password (absolutely NOT after that). You are allowed by Microsoft to create a password reset disk which can be a flash drive or a floppy disk depending on your version of Windows.

Pros: Free, easy-to-deal, only create disk once no matter how many times you change your password after creating the disk.
Cons: It only works before you lost Windows password. If you never created one yourself before losing access to Windows, you have to try other methods.

2. Another way to recover your Windows password is to use the password hint which is at the side of your password prompt on the Welcome screen. According to it, you can try to regain your forgotten password.

Pros: Convenient, free.
Cons: It often doesn't work if you have a bad memory.
