    Until you have the administrative privilege to your account you can’t do whatever you want in Windows, just follow the simple steps given to change the account password which is locked.

    STEP 1: Right Click My Computer -> Select Manage.

    STEP 2: Now select Local Users and Groups from the options given in the left window.

    STEP 3: Select Users folder -> Select the user account which you want to change the password.

    STEP 4: Right Click the user account -> Select Set Password option and give the new password and confirm the password.

    You are done, now lock your system by pressing Windows key + L and select switch user and the select the account where you forgot the password and use the new password to login.

    All you need to do is
    go to control panel and then open "user accounts"
    a new window will open showing different user account,select the account of which you want to change the password,in the next window click on "change the password"
    now set the password that you want.
