Hello, there is this Windows guide on how to reset your local account password. As you know the security questions, you should be able to reset the password and create a new one. Here are the steps:
  • After incorrectly entering a password you should be prompted to Reset Password.
  • Select the Reset password link on the sign-in screen. If you use a PIN instead, see PIN sign-in issues. If you're using a work device that's on a network, you may not see an option to reset your password or PIN. In that case, contact your administrator.
  • Answer your security questions.
  • Enter a new password.
  • Sign in as usual with the new password.


Let me know how you get on,

David
