    Hi,

    i am new to this forum, and i like to discuss a problem of mine with my Laptop which is pre loaded with Windows 8 pro 64 bit OS. unfortunately i forgot the password of my login id as i have created while i first started the Laptop. now i want to unlock that. i tried a lot but failed to do so. i have not created any password reset USB for that.

    my Laptop is a Toshiba satellite C855 series.

    please suggest me how can i solve this.

    I'd preferred free tools/methods rather than paying money for a recovery tool like the one you offer here :D

    Reset Windows 8 password


    If you don't have a reset USB, you can reset Windows 8 password through safe mode. But it may be a little bit complicated. The easiest way is to find a password reset application, say, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, to reset the lost password.

    There so many of that Password Resetters starting from 1MB (command line/DOS) till 700MB!! and all working just well. I just use the very simple command line tool booting from USB and use Linux system, which is just 4 MB!
