Loving Win 8



When I set up the new PC and had to set a password for MS, I wrote it down on a sticky note. Didn't think I would be forgetting it but guess what? Shut down the PC last night to change a couple of things and my password will not work or at least what I thought it was and even worse, it seems my sticky note is among the missing. It says I can go to "account.live.com/password/reset" but I can't figure out how to do that.

There seems to be several recovery programs but I wondered if anyone had a short cut that works. waveysmiley
