Resetting a Dell Laptop Password in Windows 7- Using the Command Prompt

Windows Command Prompt gives you a hacker’s feel if you ask me. Along with that, it is a good troubleshooting tool as well.

Besides showing off, Cmd is a tool you need to use when your machine wants to play dirty.

The method you see below uses the Cmd prompt to change your laptop’s password. And it is another easy solution to how to reset Dell laptop password Windows 7 without disk.

Start with logging into your laptop. After that, press the keys “Windows + R.” It’s a shortcut for opening the Run dialog box. You will see the Run dialogue box at the left bottom corner.

To open the command prompt type cmd and press OK or hit enter. I usually do the Enter way. It’s a more fancy way. Run the Command Prompt in the Administrator mode else it will throw up an error.

Note: Remember, fellas, the commands in the Run are not case sensitive. You can write CMD or cmd, and it will run to the same black screen.

Now, you will be staring at a black screen. It is the big bad Command Prompt we were wanting. Type in the command “net user Administrator 123”. Now written press Enter to run it.

Note here the ‘Administrator’ indicates your admin account. You can have a different name. And 123 indicates the password you want to set. Enter the required credentials and press enter.

Throwing you a tip: The Cmd commands are case-sensitive, so make sure that you don’t mess with the letters or spaces.  Additionally, the mouse cursor doesn’t work in the Cmds of Windows 7 and Windows 8. However, Windows 10 has the edge here.

The method above works for how to reset Dell laptop password Windows 10 without disk as well.
