There is a trick you can try where you boot to CD or USB and then swap a couple of files on the HDD. Instructions are about halfway down the page here: http://www.howtogeek.com/222262/how-to-reset-your-forgotten-password-in-windows-10/

Should have mentioned that I found this page and just printed it out.
Am going to follow the directions and will report on success.
Thank you.

A little different on files renamed rather than moved, and password change syntax
