    You can prevent getting locked out of your Windows 10 local account by adding security questions to reset your password from the Lock screen, and here's how to do it.
    On Windows 10, forgetting your password to sign into your account is not a fun situation, and it can happen to anyone, even when using a password that's easy to remember.
    Starting with the Fall Creators Update, Windows 10 introduced a mechanism to reset your account password from the Lock screen, but it was an option only available for those using a Microsoft account. However, with the release of the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803), it's now possible to reset the password for your local account as well.
    But before you can use this option, you must update your settings by adding security questions that you'll need to answer in order to replace the old forgotten password.
