All Windows versions, including Windows 11, provide a "Forgotten Password Wizard" feature to create a password reset disk in advance. It's essential to create this reset option in advance while using your Windows 11 computer with a password. This practice ensures you can easily reset Windows 11 password with USB when you forget the password.

You can reset the Windows 11 password via Command Prompt without logging in. But this is a tricky and complex method, and your complete attention is required to learn and understand each step.

Don't miss any step and follow these steps carefully:

Step 1. At the Windows 11 login screen, click the Power button from the bottom-right corner. Click "Restart" and hold your keyboard's "Shift" button.

Step 2. Now, your PC will boot into the Windows recovery mode and click "Troubleshoot."

Step 3. Under the Advanced options menu, click Command Prompt to open it.

click cmd

Step 4. In the Command Prompt, write diskpart and hit Enter to open the DiskPart tool.

Step 5. Enter "list volume" and press the Enter key to display a list of all volumes on your computer. Next, identify the drive letter of the OS drive containing your Windows 11 installation by referencing the volume size or volume label.

Step 6. After identifying the drive letter for your OS, input "exit" and press Enter to exit the DiskPart tool.

Step 7. Enter the command "move E:\windows\system32\utilman.exe E:\" and press Enter. This will relocate the utilman.exe file to the root directory of your OS drive, effectively creating a backup.

Step 8. Enter the following command: "copy E:\windows\system32\cmd.exe E:\windows\system32\utilman.exe" and press Enter. This action will duplicate the cmd.exe file, placing it in the E:\windows\system32 directory while renaming it as utilman.exe.

Step 9. Input the command "wpeutil reboot" and press Enter. This command will initiate a restart of your computer, bringing you back to the Windows 11 operating system.

Step 10. Upon reaching the Windows 11 login screen, select the Accessibility button, indicated by the human icon in the lower right corner. This action will open a Command Prompt window.

Step 11. Within the Command Prompt window, enter the command "net user 'username' password," for instance, you can use "net user 'Jess' 123456." Afterwards, press Enter to reset your Windows 11 password.

After resetting your password, close the Command Prompt. You can now sign in to Windows 11 with the new password. However, replacing utilman.exe with cmd.exe can pose a security risk, as anyone can reset your password. To mitigate this risk, restore the Accessibility utility by running the command in Command Prompt: "copy C:\utilman.exe C:\windows\system32\utilman.exe" and press Enter. Confirm by typing "Yes" and pressing Enter.

Via Microsoft Account

If you're using your Microsoft account to log in to your Windows 11 and forget the password, you can reset your Microsoft account password from any device, even through a cell phone or the same Windows 11 computer.

Follow the steps:

Step 1. Windows 11 login screen, click the "I forgot my password" or "I forgot my PIN," and choose the correct option, whatever you use, whether PIN or password.

Step 2. Microsoft will send you verification codes on your recovery email or phone number. Follow Microsoft's instructions and verify your account.
