Way 2: Bypass Windows Password with Password Recovery
A simple, fast and effective way to Bypass Windows password is to use software that specializes in resetting the Windows password. Among the many programs on the market we want to point out Windows Password Recovery which, as the name implies, recovers and removes the (administrator) password set on the PC so that you can access the system again.
Follow the steps outlined below carefully so that you can successfully bypass your Windows password in minutes.
Step 1. Download and install the free demo version of Windows Password Recovery on a working computer (Windows 10/8/7 / Vista) that is not password locked.

After the USB stick is connected to the computer and detected, click BEGIN BURNING to start copying files to it.
Step 3. Boot the PC "locked" via BIOS
