As a Windows 8 user, you can login your pc with multical ways. Picture passwords, standard passwords, and pin code logins are all demonstrated in Windows 8. And the new picture password feature in Windows 8 will let you use gestures like circles, lines and points to login quickly. Moreover, you can create a Windows 8 picture password for user accounts as a supplement of its traditional password. The picture password is said to be more secure and easier to remember. But no one is sure that he or she will never forget this password. What to do if you forgot Window 8 picture password.

Good post! And I want to say, when we forgot Windows 8 picture password, we can firstly try to log in with text password. If it fails, we can then try the above mentioned ways to reset Windows 8 password. In my opinion, to use a third-party Windows 8 password reset tool, say, Windows Login Recovery and John the Ripper, seems to be the easiest way. You can learn more in http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/windows-8-password-reset.html

Thanks for your share. I like your third method. But here I introduce another software I used before to you, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset. It is quick and safe, though not free. It is also OK I think. For Windows 8 password reset you can visit http://www.resetwindowspassword.com/reset-windows-8-password.html

Helpful the three methods! I agree that you talk about the ways for how to reset forgotten Windows 8 Picture Password.The option 3 is my favourite. You need to download a Windows password recovery tool if there is no password reset disk or another available admin account. Here I would like to recommend Windows Login Recovery (http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com), a professional and easy-to-use tool to reset the password.

Among all the ways I had used, the third-party reset tool is the best. You can find much reset software from the Internet, but we don't know whether they are safe or not. Here I will recommend you to use Windows Password Killer, which I had used many times. More details you can visit http://www.windowspasswordkiller.com
