    Does anybody know how to bypass Windows 10 admin password? My wife forgot the Dell laptop password and factory reset is not an option here coz there are a few important files on her’s desktop.

      There are plenty of answers from a quick web search, including booting from a Linux live CD/USB.

      I did check the linux trick but it seems too complicated for me. And there are a lot of out dated suggestions in search result.

        There are also Windows-based live-boot images out there that have a password reset tool.

        Hiren’s BootCD/USB is free, Lazesoft’s Home Edition is free, …

        … and many of the “outdated” things actually still work too, the “security hive” file format hasn’t changed in a few versions of Windows now. As in XP or earlier I believe.
