There are several methods you can try to reset or recover it. Here are a few options:

  1. Use Password Reset Disk (If Available): If you created a password reset disk before forgetting your password, you can use it to reset your password. Insert the password reset disk into your computer, follow the prompts, and reset your password.
  2. Use Another Administrator Account: If you have another administrator account on the same computer, you can log in with that account and reset the password for the forgotten administrator account. Go to "Settings" > "Accounts" > "Family & other users," select the account, and then click "Change password."
  3. Use Microsoft Account Password Reset (If Linked): If you're using a Microsoft account to sign in to Windows 11, you can reset your Microsoft account password online through the Microsoft website. Once you've reset your Microsoft account password, you can use the new password to sign in to Windows.
  4. Use Password Reset Tools: There are third-party password reset tools available that you can use to reset the administrator password. Tools like PCUnlocker, Ophcrack, and Offline NT Password & Registry Editor can help you reset the password, but they may require some technical expertise to use.
  5. Use Installation Media: If you have a Windows installation USB or DVD, you can boot your computer from the installation media and use the Command Prompt to reset the password. You'll need to access the Command Prompt from the recovery options and use the "net user" command to reset the password.
  6. Reinstall Windows: If all else fails and you don't have any important data on your computer, you can reinstall Windows to regain access. This will erase all data on the system drive, so make sure to back up any important files before proceeding.

It's important to note that some of these methods may require you to have access to another computer or have certain technical skills. Additionally, resetting the administrator password may result in loss of access to encrypted files or other data associated with the account. Please always proceed with caution.
