The best and most efficient way to remove a Windows 10 password without logging in is to use EaseUS Partition Master Professional. It enables you to create a password reset USB on another computer to erase the password of the current computer when it is stuck on the login page (Windows' own tools cannot do this).
And it can create a password reset USB with one click, which will greatly improve efficiency. It is very easy to use for beginner users.
Follow the guide to wipe Windows 10 passwords even when you are logged out.
Step 1. Insert the target USB disk into the computer, download and run EaseUS Partition Master, and click "Toolkit" > "Password Reset."
Step 2. A small window will pop up. After reading it carefully, click "Create".
Step 3. Select the correct USB flash drive or external mobile hard disk and click "Create" again. Wait patiently. After the password reset USB flash drive is created, click "Finish."
Step 4. Remove the password reset USB, insert it into the locked PC, and restart. You will be asked to change the boot drive to boot the PC from USB. Once completed, the system will automatically boot from USB.
Step 5. After restarting, find EaseUS Partition Master again and go to "Password Reset." All accounts on the PC will be displayed in the interface; click on the target account and check "Reset & Unlock."
