I haven't used my computer in a while and I forgot the Win 10 password. It only has one user.

I understand there are many utilities but before trying them I would like to know if it's possible to reset the Windows 10 password from the installation DVD.

I started it and chosed repair instead of install, I get various options but I can't find any option for resetting the password

Reset or retrieve the password but I think retrieving is not an option.

Also I tried from the login screen to reset password but it requires internet and it does not have internet

  • Can you get temporary Internet? Likely it was set up with a Microsoft Account and you need to log into Microsoft Live to change the Microsoft Account password. – John Mar 10 at 17:44

  • “I understand there are many utilities but before trying them I would like to know if it's possible to reset the Windows 10 password from the installation DVD.” - You don’t; You use an Administrator account and reset the password from within Windows – Ramhound Mar 10 at 22:52
