Are you an administrator on the Windows operating system with multiple user accounts? Have you forgotten the password to one of the other accounts and you are locked out? Then, provided you are the administrator, you can reset the password from the Command Prompt.
To open the Windows Command Prompt, just go to your Start menu then choose “run” (or press your Windows key and then press R). Then in the Run box that pops up, type cmd and press enter.
Now in the Command Prompt window that comes up, type net user then enter. This will give you a list of all your Windows accounts on that computer.
Changing the password for one of these accounts is very simple. Say the account name is asks and you want to change the password to thenewpassword then you just need to type the following command:
net user asks thenewpassword
After pressing Enter, you should then get a message saying the command completed successfully. That means the password has now been changed and you can now log into that account.
If the user account name has more than one word e.g. John Doe, place the username within quotes.
net user "John Doe" thenewpassword
