One of the features that make Windows 8 stand out of the crowd is the possibility to sign in using a picture password. Both tablet and PC users will be able to use a picture as a password instead of a text password or PIN to log in.
Now, you’ll have to select and copy the picture you want to use a password to your Windows 8 Pictures folder. You’ll then have to draw lines, circles or taps on any three areas of that picture and recreate these gestures in the same order when you want to log in.
Some might say that this feature suits better for those using a touch-screen tablet but PC users can go for this feature too by using their mouse when creating and re-creating the gestures. Creating a picture password in Windows 8 Release Preview is nothing complicated.
But, if you lost password for Windows 8 and did not create or active a picture password to logon your computer, you will be locked out of your computer. In this situation, you still can use some ways below to reset the traditional text password or get into your computer again.
