How To Change Administrator Password in Windows 7 Without Admin Rights

In Computer Tips • By Raman Sharma • Last Updated: January 30, 2015 • No Comments

If you are a regular visitor of All Useful Info, you would know that I previously also wrote articles about how to change admin password in Windows 7 PC. Previously, I’ve published two articles about changing Windows PC password.

  1. How to Change Admin Password Using Cpanel
  2. How To Change Administrator Password Using Command Prompt

Both of the above articles are made for Windows computers and I tested them on my Windows 7 PC. But, the bad thing about both of them is that they require administrator permissions to change password and that’s why you can’t change admin password without admin rights.
