How to Unlock HP Envy Laptop If Forgot Windows 10 Password

Forgot Windows 10 password of your HP Envy laptop and did not prepare a password reset disk? How can I get back in without losing files? When you run into this situation, you can unlock HP Envy laptop by resetting Windows 10 password with a bootable disk - PCUnlocker.

1Install PCUnlocker onto USB Drive

When you're locked out of HP Envy laptop, you have to use another computer to install PCUnlocker onto a USB drive. All you need is a copy of PCUnlocker ISO image and a USB flash drive that is 1GB or larger.

  1. Download PCUnlocker Enterprise (trial version) and save it to a folder on your hard drive. Extract the contents of the downloaded ZIP archive and you should see a file called pcunlocker.iso.
