Yes you can recover password from password recovery boot disk also, but remember sometimes this method does not work.

Here's the official steps from Microsoft. I hope you have all your data backed up.
Are you using a local password or a Microsoft account (looks like an email address)?

Are you using administrator account or another account, there is a way to reset if you are using another account. You have to boot your p.c. in safe mode (using key F8) then login from administrator account, from compmgmt.msc  --- Local Users & Groups --- Users --- select your account then you can reset/change your user account password.

I am using an administrator account.
BTW, is the a method of creating a boot disk that will allow you to change your password?

Thanks to all. BTW, I rebooted my system and everything returned to normal. Go figure
