Tenorshare Windows Password Recovery Tool Review

Is Tenorshare’s Windows Password Recovery Tool the ideal Password Reset Tool for the Novice PC user?

If you’re an advanced user or technically savvy then Tenorshare windows password recovery tool may not be the right choice for you. Having said that though, there are some nice  features advanced users may like. This includes being able to add PE raid drivers and customizing the boot image for specific OS’s.  If you’re a novice user or have very little understanding of the dynamics of Windows passwords and really aren’t interested in learning then Tenorshare Windows Password Recovery Tool may very well be the right choice for you. And yes, I am aware there are freeware versions of similar programs, but they lack the support, features and documentation that Ternorshare apps provide.

Creating your Bootable USB or CD media

Note:
Microsoft has adopted UEFI (in place of BIOS) boot standard. To change, reset or remove Windows 10/8.1/8 password, make sure you’ve disabled UEFI secure boot.

Download, install and launch this software. You will get the interface like below. Windows Password Recovery Tool offers you two options to create a bootable CD/DVD/USB flash drive:

  • Mode 1: Quick Recovery – Create a bootable CD/DVD or a USB flash drive with default ISO image
  • Mode 2: Advanced Recovery Wizard – Create an advanced CD/DVD/USB that has better hardware compatibility
Mode 1: Quick Recovery – Create a bootable CD/DVD or a USB flash drive with default ISO image

In this mode, you can use the default ISO image file provided by Windows Password Recovery Tool to burn a bootable CD/DVD or a USB flash drive. If your computer can’t read the default ISO image, please go to Mode 2.

Run Windows Password Recovery Tool and choose your password reset medium. Click “Burn” to starting burning a password reset disk.
