Now we would step forward to the detailed steps of resetting Windows password with an Android phone. Here I would take Windows 10 as an example.
Step 1: Connect your Android phone to the target computer with a USB cable and set the phone as a media device (MTP).
Step 2: Launch the WPGnius on your phone and click Phone button on the bottom of the screen. Then click Mount at the coming screen.

Step 4: Select the WPGenius in the Boot Menu.
If nothing wrong, you would get into the password resetting screen which looks like the below picture.
Step 5: Check the OS in the Select a Windows section if you have a dual system in your computer and then find and reset the target user name in the Select a User section. Click Reset Password button and then click Reboot while unpluging the disk as well.
Then when the computer boot normally, you can login the system by the target user name without any password.
The steps of resetting a password for Windows 7 or 8 are similar with the above steps.
