USB Password Reset Disk

Login with password

USB Password Reset Disk: For logging into Windows, we are working to create the most secure passwords, protecting the privacy of unauthorized users. The problem is that more complex passwords are easily forgotten, so we exclude ourselves if we forget the password, which can even reinstall the system by deleting all the data that is on the system partition.

Create new login password


The Microsoft team from Redmond, which operates in Washington, constituent state of the U.S., also thought of this case when creating a disk password reset option that is part of Windows 10 and for use was made available for free.

Note: If you forgot your password during login, it is not possible to create a recovery disc later, so create one as soon as possible, start right now if possible. It takes only a few minutes, even if the description seems to be long. When logging in to Windows, just connect the flash drive to your computer and you can easily create another login password at any time.

What you will need: Flash drive (pendrive).

Quick tip: Save all data on your device because it needs to be formatted.
