    Forgot login password of my tablet

    I gave my Windows 10 tablet to my kid for a while and today he told me that he couldn't remember the login password. I tried the original password set on the device. But it didn't work either. I hope someone would help me on this.

    Welcome

    We can't help you remember the password & only Microsoft can help you reset it. You'll need to contact them.

    Try doing an internet search for recovering lost windows 10 local account password. I think I have seen the fix for this but it was so long ago I no longer know where to look.

    Thanks. I already did it before posting here. Tried two tools but failed.

    but if you dont have, it seems that some free tools like EDIT can help reset windows password, but I'm not sure!
    Unfortunately, I forgot to create a password reset disk. Which one is the easiest from your suggestion? I am not a tech savy

    I would be very careful about any of these "tools" - I am suspicious both of the poster and tools of this type as they tend to be vehicles for malware.

    Hi, allow us to apologize that this has happened. Since you've already tried to recover your password without success, you may have to perform a factory reset to remove it. Unfortunately, this will result in losing all data stored on your device.
