at the login screen, click on the question mark button. If you have given yourself a hint, you will see a bubble pop up with text that you inputted when you originally made the password. Try to think of every possible thing that would relate to that hint and try typing it in. Don't give up too easily. If you solve it here, you will be done.

4. Reset password from another user account with administrator credentials

a. Restart the computer.

b. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.
