Getting locked out of Windows 8.1
People with new computers coming installed with windows 8 have to create a new windows passport account and email. They do so and then forget their password, rendering the computer locked out, with no recovery information.
To prevent that, create a local user that is Administrator.
Click on Control-Panel
