Have you ever forgotten your Windows password and couldn’t access your laptop? Well, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the simple steps to reset your passcodes on Windows computers and devices. This method will work on Windows 8 or higher, including Windows 8.1, and will work on any device, whether it’s a laptop, desktop, or even a tablet.
However, before we begin, it’s important to note that this method will delete everything on your computer. If you have any important files, unfortunately, you’re going to lose them if you proceed with this tutorial. But, if you’ve backed everything up on a separate drive, you’ll be fine.
So, let’s get started. The first step is to turn off the computer and click restart. While the computer is restarting, hold down the shift button. Keep holding it until you see the screen. Once you see the screen, you can let go of the shift button.
Next, click on troubleshoot and then click on reset your PC. After a few screens load, you’ll see a confirmation screen asking if you want to reset your PC. Click yes. Then, select all drives and click on remove my files. Finally, click ready, and that’s it.
After a few minutes of loading, you’ll be prompted to set up your laptop as if it’s a new device. Once you’ve typed in all your information and set up the computer, you’ll be ready to use your laptop.
