How can I reset my Windows 10 password without a password reset disk?

In summary, a person's laptop requires a password after four years of not needing one, and there are a variety of ways to recover forgotten passwords, including using a password recovery tool like Ophcrack, booting from a USB drive with Knoppix, or using a password utility included with Windows.

thanks for the tip. I though it could be safe to use it as many people recommend it.
A tool set can be safe to use but unsafe if used unsafely. In general read-only tools are safer than write-capable tools are. Hirens includes useful and reliable tools that are safe to use if used correctly but that can damage or destroy a system if used incorrectly.
BTW, I tried to use the Password Edit utility but failed to change my windows 10 password.
I would need more information before I could be of assistance regarding that.

I would like to see how and why the attempted correction option failed.
