    Default Computer logon recovery password

    I am trying to return to Trainz to try and fix the various problems with my content. My trains work is done on my second computer. In my absence from Trainz Family members have used that machine and for some reason they reset the password and neither of the saved codes allow me to log on. Can someone suggest a recovery tool that does work without being too complex for my aged brain.

    Thanks.

    Presuming Win10 Peter and not using a Microsoft Account?

    Easiest is to use recovery software on a bootable DVD or USB stick.

    https://www.lazesoft.com/forgot-wind...-freeware.html has a somewhat dated video for Win 8.1 but does work in Win10 and presumably also 11 as under the hood it's pretty much the same.

    Or similar:

    I've found that this disk is a real gem for most any computer repair problem, including a password reset facility. It is free, and contains tons of great stuff. Scroll to the bottom and download the ISO file, then burn it into a CD. Boot from the CD and select what you want to do.
