    One of my student adds a password on his computer and told me he is locked out because of forgetting the password. I am not tech savy. Please recommend a program to unlock the computer. It is a Dell PC with Windows 10.

    As far as I know, there are currently three ways to help reset forgotten windows password.

    Way 1: Use a Windows password reset disk

    When you create a user account on PC, Windows 10 allows you to create a password reset disk in order to help you reset password afterwards when you forgot Windows 10 password, then you can use this password reset disk to reset your locked PC.

    way 2. try some free windows password reset disk like ntpassword, ophcrack ,tunesbro wingeeker and more..
    you need to prepare an USB or DVD and a working computer.

    Way 3. Try an administrator account

    Want to reset Windows 10 password without disk? If you are lucky enough to get someone who has an administrator account or a user account which has the administrator privilege on your PC, then you can try to use the password to sign in your PC for Windows 7 password reset.

    Way 4: Re-installing Windows 10

    No matter what famous brands of PC you are using, the last thing they tell you when you forgot Windows 10 login password is to reinstall Windows system to reset Windows 10 password free.

    Hacking advice ? ok , one of the effective ways to do this is to use a password reset disk ,you jsut need to boot the locked computer form it , and you can reset the login password ,if you didn't have password disk , maybe you can make one with USB /DVD/CD ,

    The OP wasn't genuinely interested in helping a student, read between the lines. They also haven't been back since 19th September.

    I think the fact the OP is called fifagenus (sic) is a pretty good giveaway

    Windows password login problems have been around for a long time,forget, lose Windows password or whatever,but recover or remove the password is not a problem.
