How to find a forgotten user password in Windows 10?

Yes, folks, absolutely crazy, and stupid story happened to me recently. In General, for many years, for many sites, the social. networks, and also for some encrypted discs I used one, a simple password. I used it at home for basic/independent user of Windows (not Microsoft account). Recently, coming to work, opening the Telegram, and staring at the window, enter passcode, I realized that I can't remember your master password at all. At the same time I started to panic "How so? A lapse of memory? What to do now?". I remember a fairly large number of passwords, but I screwed up, forgetting the one that decided not to write too relying on your memory. Well, this should be a lesson to me, and Yes, I know that the recovery of the various online accounts you can use the phone number and mailbox, and BitLocker needs your recovery key with all this is no problem, and I am sure that access to 99% of the resources I will be able to recover. Unfortunately, it will not work with the basic windows user 10, because, as I expressed earlier, the profile I have Autonomous, not tied to Microsoft account.

In this case there are two solutions – password reset, or restore using third-party tools, and personally I'm more interested in the second option i.e. I would like it to "LEARN" your old password without resetting it. Guys in the network are advised to use tools such as Ophcrack, L0phtCrack, Elcomsoft and System Recovery, but really you should use in this case, I don't know. In General, who faced similar problem, please help, I'd be grateful.

PS the computer still has the second user – my sister access to it is available, but it is not the admin if it is possible how or whether to complete the task?

So guys, in General, I figured the problem. For the solution I needed with a fresh bootable Windows 10 PE Sergei Strelec, and the program Reset Windows Password on it. My Windows 10 LTSB v/1607 no name of this utility was done in literally two clicks, and on the one hand, it's really good, because I saved myself from the headaches and from having to reset passwords on a range of resources and knowing how Microsoft operate with security, frankly, is not alone. In any case, thank you all for your participation, you always come to the rescue!

By the way, the working manual I got here: (and no, not advertising)

I would have saved passwords in the browser dug - this is the easiest. Certainly one of many is what you need.

To know the forgotten password in Windows impossible. You can only reset Hiren's BootCD, for example. If the password was used many where - is view saved passwords - in Windows, in FF (if used), in chrome.

First to circumvent and then to peep into the system (if possible)

PS. He yuzal prog from Elcomsoft, but on Windows 7, quietly knew the password and came

If the password is saved in plaintext, you can use mimikatz. If you show only the hash, so will have to pick the password by using
Ophcrack, L0phtCrack, Elcomsoft System Recovery, and
(still have WPR)
