Windows 10 - 3rd party password changer

I am looking for a free tool that I use to reset a password on WIndows 10.   The user didn't create a reset disk or anything of that nature when windows was first installed.  Any help would be awesome.

thanks

I agree with the above, and I have used Pogostick before and it works well. You been to prepare a bootable USB key and may have to disable Secure Boot in BIOS first

You can make a bootable USB for Pogostick and it should work.
