Recover password

I have this old W8.1 laptop. I've no idea what password it uses.

I remember I once had similar situation with Windows almost 20 years ago and all I had to do is to use floppy disk with bit of software that would just output passwords in plain text. It wasn't hard to find.

Is there a similar way to do it with 8.1? Without opening it to all the hackers in the world..
