However, if they have taken some precautions for Windows password recovery in advance then they can handle this situation easily and quickly. Therefore, it is advisable to all the Windows users who have protected their PC with passwords to follow these precautions so that you can recover your password if you have lost or forgotten it. These precautions are:
Create Password Hint: One of the best ways to recover password of your PC is to create password hint. Hence, if you have set the password hint then it is displayed as you enter a wrong password.
Windows Password Reset Disk: It is one of the most helpful devices to recover lost or forgotten Windows password despite of the scenario of lost or forgotten Windows password. However, you have to create a dedicated password disk in advance as you cannot use any other PC’s password reset disk.
