Hi,
If your user is a local user (not a Microsoft account like user@hotmail.com), you can do this:

Create a new user with admin privileges.
Log off.
Log in with the new user and change other user's password.

If it is a Microsoft account, try to login to that Microsoft service and change the password or try "I don't remember my password" and change it before you log off.
Also, you can use the appropriate option in the tutorial below to reset your Microsoft account password to be able to use with netplwiz and have Windows 10 automatically sign in to your account at startup:
