Using the appropriate created disk when you forget the password for your account, you will have the option of putting a new password directly and confirming it also. And then there you go you have a new known password for the needed account of your laptop.
This kind of disk only works for local accounts (not domain accounts). Also if you use such a disk, you can use the same disk again in the future without the need to update it. Creating a password reset disk will work well for Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8/ Windows 10.
