This question already has an answer here:
How can we remove or reset Windows passwords in Windows 8, without logging in to windows first?
In Windows 7, I used Hirens but it is not working for Windows 8.
I am talking about local user account password not Microsoft online accounts like
@hotmail.com or domain accounts those can be reset.
The scenario is a computer running Windows 8 with a local only user and the client forgot the password to the only active account. Is there a way to remove or reset that password?
