Hi guys,
i was trying to access and old notebook with Win8 that has a password which i forgot, what is the safest way to access without needing the password? Back in the day i used a linux OS to change it but i forgot the name. Maybe youve used a more efficient method
id appreciate your help

What @Solaris17 pointed you to.

I used it a couple of months back. Setup a new admin account and reset the password from that account.
