    It really depends on whether you are using Microsoft Account or Local Account and if you have any other account?
    Take a look at:

    In worse case, you have to reinstall your Windows.

    Hi there,

    If your user is linked with a Microsoft account, you can reset the password

    If it is a Local account you must try the clean install method or try out these steps
    Press the Shift key while you select the Power button > Restart in the lower-right corner of the screen.

    On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC.

    Select Remove everything.
