There are utilities which let you recover a password, or reset it to blank.

Some have a free trial version which you download and run on your computer. If it gives you confidence it will work, you pay a fee to unlock the program's functions.

Try a search on 'extract password win 8'. You may be tempted to go for a free utility, but these days you don't know if it will put malware on your computer.

So it's a good idea to do some research on password recovery tools. Look through reviews at a few forums. Etc.

I forgot my password of windows 8.What to do?

As you said, I can share several ways how to reset Windows 8 password
there are three options that you can follow:
option 1:use password reset disk if you have made one. this is an easy way to reset just follow the instructions.
option 2:use command prompt to reset Windows 8 password, but you should login your Windows as administrator
option 3:use third party program to reset lost windows 8 password. Windows Password Recovery Tool is a good choice that you can try, you can reset the lost password in several ninutes.

Do you use windows encryption?
Then you would loose all data if you haven't a password reset disk.
