After the Samsung computer boot from USB drive, then you should now see the program interface, as shown below:

Wait until the program reset the password to blank (no password), 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.
