I have a Lenovo Windows 10 home premium laptop, and recently none of my passwords work to log back in.
How can I recover my password. ?
1. I have tried boot disk utilities - they do not work, the computer by passes the boot CD or usb.
    pcunlock - does not work.
2. I can however remove the hard drive and connect it to another computer. - I am backing up data.
3. Is there a way to find the Windows 10 password file and reset password from there. ?
