    My computer was hacked by someone and not able to login in the device with my initial password. I suspected the hacker changed my password so I need to get it back. How can I reset forgotten password on Windows 10?

    Hopefully you set a security question/pin when you created the account originally, if you did then just

    To Reset your Windows 10 local account password:

    • Select the Reset password link on the sign-in screen. If you use a PIN instead, see PIN sign-in issues.
    • Answer your security questions.
    • Enter a new password.
    • Sign in as usual with the new password.

    it is a local account password, so the above method does not work in my case

    As i did before,the Windows password can be reset by Windows password reset disk,do you have a password reset disk? It can solve your problem quickly,you just need to plug it into your computer,after the computer reboot,it will reset Windows 10 password for you.

    A good idea for resetting Windows 10 password,don’t reinstall Windows 10,that is a disaster.
