Hello Friends, Welcome to our blog, today I am writing about how to Reset Windows 10 Administrator Password without login. Sometimes we are facing issue with our windows Administrator (User Name) password and not able to login with the administrator.
Why Reset Administrator Password –
We have required ‘Administrator’ login for making any change in our system setting. Before following the steps please confirm the first ‘Administrator’ are enabled on your Laptop/Desktop. If you have not enabled the ‘Administrator’ account on your system, you will reset the password but you will not be able to log in to the ‘Administrator’ account.
