there was that time when windows 10 was just released and i just updated my dad's laptop. it prompted me to make an account for my dad. didn't think that it would set up password lock for the OS. i set a sentence as a password and i forgot what it was. panicked until i remembered that i wrote the password down on paper for my dad hahahaha

ive never forgotten a password though sometimes windows 10 likes to be a dick and say my password is incorrect sometimes
honestly the only thing I can say to this is that you might have typed it too fast. plus you can always peek at the password you've typed in as well before actually pressing enter

Usually just general mistypes, if I forgot my password I'd be in trouble because I'd be completely locked out of my Microsoft account...
My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world.

And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came, the wind carried the same thing... Death.

But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin.

I coveted that wind, I suppose.

Nope. It's one of the things I'm least likely to forget, actually.

I've forgotten plenty of passwords, but uh, I don't think ever the one I use to login to a computer of mine. That one's always going to be one of the passwords I actually remember.

me forgetting my passwords is a thing of mine i should really write down which one i'm using for which site sometime.

but as for my computer itself once when i got a brand new computer i managed to put my new password in wrong twice so when i tried logging in after it did all it's set-up stuff i couldn't get in hahah. good thing that it was literally new so fixing it was easy.

I have 3 female colleagues who forgot their computer login password and asked me to unlock the device. Turn out the password is pretty simple.

Does this happen to you?
Never, I can't forget it because I use it daily.

i have multiple passwords so i'll often forget which password i'm using for whatever account, but i've never forgotten what those passwords are (it just sometimes takes me 4 different tries to get into an account because i try each password lol)

Even you forgot the login password, don't reinstall the OS immediately. It is a stupid move as there are better solutions out there without losing data.

A password manager?If all accounts are set to the same password, I think security will be affected.
That's not what password manager means.

I do use somewhat similar passwords everywhere except for to my computers, so it actually can get confusing when I switch between the four of them sometimes haha.

Chose one I would never forget.
Tends to help, though I would say I don't always do that practice due to how passwords need to be longer to be well...effective.
