One thing I like about computers is that they are completely logical. Whatever action they take, it’s for a reason, and they only do as they are instructed to do. However, the people that create computers aren’t always very logical. Today I want to show you an example of this.
Imagine one day you turned on your computer, and for some reason you cannot recall the Windows password. Oh no! What do you do? Don’t worry – Microsoft has you covered. That is, if you plan ahead.
One of the wonderful features built into Windows is the opportunity to create a “Forgotten Password” disk.
You just follow the prompts, and a file is created on your flash drive that allows you to reset the Windows password if you should ever forget what it is. All you have to do is make sure you know where to find that disk drive, so that you can use it to reset the password.
That’s the part that I find to be not very logical. I have an easier method.
Let’s say your Windows password is “snoopy45”. In order to use the Scott Johnson Forgotten Password Wizard, you just need 2 items:
1. A Sharpie permanent marker:
Step 1: Take the Sharpie marker, and write your Windows password on the CD
Step 2: Keep the CD in a safe place where you won’t lose it
I think my method is a lot easier.
