    If you are using a Microsoft account, then check it here:

    Microsoft password reset page

    If you are using a Local account then:

    1. Restart the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key to enter the Advanced Boot Options.
    2. Select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
    3. Once in Command Prompt, type net user username newpassword (replace "username" with your actual username and "newpassword" with your new password).
