Editors' Review

+

Windows Password Key can recover your Windows passwords when all else fails. It burns a password key on a CD that can reset administrator and user passwords in Windows XP to 8.1, including most Server editions. It accepts FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and NTFS5 file systems and SATA, IDE, SCSI, and SAS drives.

Pros

Affordable: Compared to the time and expense of professional service or the aggravation of trying to reset passwords yourself, Windows Password Key might be the least painful alternative.

Easy to use: A well-illustrated Help file makes Windows Password Key easy to understand and use.

Cons

No USB: The Standard version of Windows Password Key only creates password recovery CDs, which is a problem if a PC or laptop lacks an optical drive. To create a password recovery USB Flash drive, you must upgrade to Windows Password Key Professional.

BIOS changes: You may need to make changes to your PC's BIOS to boot from a password recovery disk, which is another level of complexity entirely.

Bottom Line

Windows Password Key is affordable and easy to use. We wish it accepted USB drives, but it's a good place to start when you need to reset your Windows passwords.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Windows Password Key 8.5.

"Great utility to reset Windows 8 password!!!"

November 10, 2014  |  By Aidenlinda

 |  Version: Windows Password Key 8.5

Pros

I recently bought a Windows 8 computer and I forgot my password (yeah, pretty stupid. I know). I'm typing this from my phone. When I set up the computer, it gave me the option of inserting a flash drive and giving it the power of resetting the password of any account on the computer. So I inserted the flash drive into the computer and the password reset wizard came up. I put in the new password and password hint and clicked next. But an error screen came up that said something along the lines of there was an error resetting the password. I tried multiple times to reset the password, even trying changing it to a different password, none of the attempts worked. Thanks to this amazing tool. Or else I couldn't have log in to my computer so easily.

Cons

Not free. I have to buy a full version.

Summary

To be frank, it is worth the price to buy the product because it is really useful when you have lost your computer password.

Pros

I forgot my Sony laptop login password on Windows 8. I tried with the safe mode method on the Internet. But it just took me to the login screen with a password to login.
Thanks to this amazing tool. I don't need to reset the password with complex steps.

Cons

Just a little expensive for me.

Summary

This tool helped me a lot. I am glad to share it with my friends.
