        The Locksmith tool, part of Microsoft's free Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset, is handy to have for resetting forgotten Windows 8 local account passwords. Check it out over on Microsoft's TechNet site.

        Also, you might consider using a Microsoft account on your Windows 8 PC. It offers standard password reset capabilities via the Web among other benefits.

        Good luck!

          Is DaRT really free?
          It comes with MDOP, so free to Enterprise Select and (for the moment) TechNet customers, but AFAIK not generally available.

          I would be very happy to be proved wrong on that, though!

            MDOP is free if you have Software Assurance or are a partner, as well as what Ossian said.
