Well, this is embarrassing. I am using Win 10 and I forgot my login password. I have to open up a Command Prompt but do not have a bootable file to repair. Are there any shortkeys/keys that can open up the Command Prompt even under a locked account?
if you have the bootable media
- Boot from the Windows 10 DVD or pendrive
- Press SHIFT + F10 to open a command prompt.
Did you check your password while you enter password caps lock is on and off
Sometimes user not noticed that small thing
As password is case sensitive
If checked then you have to break password
also you can download this soft ISO https://ophcrack.sourceforge.io/ and write it on USB and boot your PC from removeable media and it will automatically do everything
Reset Windows Password in Safe Mode
Boot your computer and immediately press on the F8 key repeatedly until your computer displays the boot menu. With the arrow keys, choose Safe Mode and press the Enter key. On the home screen, click on Administrator.
You may try to enter the command prompt by using recovery media.
