    How To Recover Windows 8 Password Without Reseting it?


    i see a lot of things on how to reset the password for windows 8 or to just get rid of it but is there a way to just get the information to know what the password is?

    reseting it isn't really an option

    thanks

    Hello Contraplex, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry, but we can't help you to see a user account's password, but only to reset it. This is because of security purposes.

    Is there a way to temporarily disable the administrator account password and maybe enable it on a restart or something of the fashion?

    I'm trying to cleanup my little sisters pc but her dad has it locked with a password disabling me from doing much and he doesn't trust me with the password or access to programs despite me being 23 and using computers daily for the past 10~ years. >_<

    I don't want to reset the password because I don't want to deal with him getting angry at me and he's not very compliant especially considering what I want to do/what the computer requires will require the password 25+ times

    I can't even look at the logs for why she's getting bluescreens..

    Nope. We can't help you to bypass it. You will need to talk to her dad.
