    I have forgotten Windows 8 password on Samsung Smart PC. How should I do to reset Windows 8 password? I'm in hurry to access Samsung Smart PC.

    Samsung Smart PC, also called Samsung 700t, is installed with Windows 8 operational system.
    • 1. If you have created PIN code for Windows 8 logon, when the Windows system prompts you that your login password, you can change to select login Windows 8 with PIN code. It is the easiest way.
    • 2. If you don't have PIN code and another administrator account, you can think about third-party password recovery software. Here, I recommend you Windows Password Genius. And this is a software you just need USB device and accessible computer. I just learned from here Get access to Samsung 700t after Windows 8 password forgotten .

    GO TO and click on the "Get Adobe Flash Player" button on the right.
    You must also be running windows XP or Vista. If you are using anything older you are out of luck.
