Insert a blank USB flash drive, or CD/DVD into the computer. In this article, we'll take a USB drive for example.
Next, go to the program main interface, and hit "USB device" button, the program will begin making a password reset disk of Windows 10 for Samsung machine.
Once the Windows 10 password reset USB drive has been created, disconnect it and insert it into your locked Samsung laptop or desktop that you can't access.
Since your locked computer boots from Windows OS by default, you should have to change the boot device sequence in BIOS on your computer BIOS so that it will boot from the Windows 10 reset password USB drive. Take it easy!
Step 2: Configure BIOS boot device order
1) Microsoft uses the UEFI BIOS replacement for the traditional BIOS on new Windows 10 machines. If you're using a machine with Windows 10 preinstalled, you have to access the UEFI BIOS and disable Secure Boot, then follow the traditional way to set legacy BIOS to boot from CD/ DVD or USB drive.
2) If you just upgraded an existing computer to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or earlier version, you can simply follow the article about how to set legacy BIOS to boot from CD/DVD or USB drive.
Step 3: reset password of your local account on windows 10
After the Samsung computer boot from USB drive, then you should now see the program interface, as shown below:
If you have more than one Windows installation on the computer, be sure to choose the Windows 10 you want. Select the admin/ user account that you want to reset the lost password and then click on the blue "Reset" button at the bottom side.
Wait until the program reset the password to blank, which may take a few seconds.
After that, all you have to do is simply click the "Reboot" button, and remove the USB drive from the computer (important!), or your Samsung computer will boot from it again next time.
That's it! Now wait for the Samsung computer to restart.
You are able to log onto the Windows 10 login screen without a password.
