Do you have any creative thought that what you would do if you forgot Windows 8 password? This has been a new but also hot topic since Microsoft showed off an early development build of Windows 8 at the Windows BUILD keynote in September, 2011.
“Everything that’s great about Windows 7, is better in Windows 8” boasted by spokesman of Microsoft, Julie Larson-Green. And this all makes so many computer users excited. According to the Windows Developer Preview (Windows 8 Demo), we are also aware of Windows 8, today, in its development stage, uses less memory and runs fewer processes under normal use, compared to Windows 7. Another significant new feature with Windows 8 is its logon screen. Microsoft has said that devices running the forthcoming Windows 8 operating system could use a “picture password” security system, involving tapping, circling and touching images. Picture password is designed for enhancing login security and login speed to system.
However, here I need to note that picture password will neither replace your normal password. Instead, you can assign a normal local password and PIN, as well as picture password. Since there are so many choices in logon to Windows 8, while professionals will still suggest you to change all your Windows 8 passwords regularly. However, like Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, you will easily forget Windows 8 password. Don’t worry, because it is believed that there will be effective ways to recover the forgottenWindows 8 password.
Method 1: Use Password Reset Wizard
With a Windows 8 password reset disk, you can easily change your password in seconds when you forgot it. Once you’ve typed the wrong password, Windows 8 will show you the error message that “The password is incorrect. Try again.” After clicking the OK button, Windows 8 will show the password hint and a “Reset password” link below the login box
At that time, insert your Windows 8 password reset disk in the computer, and then click the “Reset password” link and it will bring up the Password Reset Wizard. Follow the wizard guides and reset your forgotten Windows 8 password in seconds.
Method 2:Use Windows 8 Password Recovery Tool
This is the last and the only straw when you forgot all you Windows 8 login passwords and system is completely locked.
Step 1.Download a free demo version of Windows Password Unlocker.
Step 2. Run the downloaded file to install Windows Password Unlocker on any PC you have access to.
Step 3. Burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive with Windows Password Key.
Step 4: Recover Windows 8 password with the burned CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive.
If the Windows 8 picture password is forgotten
Windows 8 supports picture password, but it is based on a touch-screen device. To unlock the device if it is with picture password protected, users must tap or touch parts of the image in the right order and direction. Picture password is secure but also with lot of fun to use. If you forgot the picture password, there are also ways to find it! Windows Password Key is working on it and according to what they’ve said.
See Though Windows 8 hasn’t come out yet, its lost login password has proved to be recoverable. As for the three types of Windows 8 login passwords, I have to say I prefer the traditional text password because in the past years, I’ve just got used to it and most importantly, picture password should based on desktop or laptop with touch-screen, while I haven’t considered for a touch-screen laptop yet. What do you think?

If you want to do Windows 8 recovery password I think the second method may be better. Last time I also forgot my Windows 8 password. From Google I know I can download Ophcrack to create a reset disk to unlock PC. Your tool, reset software is also good I think.
