How to Create a Windows 11 Password Reset Disk - Step by Step Tutorial

A password reset disk is a physical disk or USB flash drive that contains a special file used to reset a Windows password. If you've forgotten your Windows password and can't log into your computer, a password reset disk is the easiest way to regain access to your account.

Creating a password reset disk is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. All you need is a blank USB drive and access to the computer you want to create the disk for. Once you have the reset disk created, you can use it to reset your password if you ever forget it.

Here's how to create a Windows password reset disk:

1. Insert a blank USB drive into your computer.

2. Open the Control Panel and click on User Accounts.

3. Under the "Make changes to your user account" section, click on the link that says "Create a password reset disk."

4. The Password Reset Disk Wizard will open. Click Next to continue.

5. Select the USB drive you inserted in Step 1 and click Next.

6. Enter your current password and click Next.

7. The wizard will now create the password reset disk. This process may take a few minutes.

8. When the process is complete, click Next and then Finish.

You can now remove the USB drive and store it in a safe place. If you ever forget your Windows password, you can use this disk to reset it.

To use the password reset disk, insert it into the computer and boot from it. When you see the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press the Enter key. On the next screen, select your language settings and then press F3 to exit.

You will now be at the "Repair your computer" menu. Select the option for "Reset your password."

Enter the username for the account you want to reset the password for and then click Next.

Select the password reset disk you created and click Next.

Enter a new password for the account and click Next.

You will now be able to log into Windows with the new password. Be sure to change the password to something you will remember so you don't have to use the reset disk again.
