Re: How to Unlock Windows 8 Password if Forgot or Lost?

The three ways to unlock Windows 8 password, I prefer to the first and the third one. The first way may be the direct but not all people have when they forgot password. The last one may be the best one. But I only used another reset tool, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, which is quick and effective.
