    Need to create recovery disk for W8.1 - But I have W10


    I have my old Dell computer that is running Windows 8.1 that my mom tried to throw away and I can't get into it - It's a few years old and I can't login to it.

    I would like to use a password reset disk, but I don't know how to make one on my Windows 10 Laptop.

    I wouldn't be against resetting the entire computer back to factory, I just need to get into it, I could care less about the files on it.

    Thanks guys.
