    Dear community,
    my father login into his PC (Windows 10 pro x86) using microsoft account (name@outlook.com).
    He forgot the account password but fortunately I had previously setup the autologin, so he can access his PC. The problem now is that he need the password for setup the mail. He never create any recover option (like alternative mail or mobile number) so it's impossbile to use online recover/reset.

    Now the question is simple, is there any way to recover the password? I know Windows store the latest password offline, this just in case the PC is offline, maybe this is the way.

    Thank you
    Lucas
