When you see the pop-up dialog box that says “Burned successfully”, it means the password reset disk has been created successfully. Then, eject the USB drive from the computer.
Step 2: Boot your PC from the disk.
Plug the password reset USB drive you just created into the locked computer on which you wish to bypass the Windows 10 login screen.
Start (or restart) your computer, and once it starts, press and hold F12 or F8 (or Esc, depending on the manufacturer of your computer) until the boot menu appears.
In the boot menu, choose your USB drive as the boot device and click OK. Your computer will boot from the USB drive.
When your computer has finished booting from the USB drive, you will see iSumsoft Windows Password Refixer on your screen.

Click the Reboot button, then click Yes and quickly remove the USB drive from your computer. Your computer will reboot normally.
Step 4: Bypass the Windows 10 login screen.
Once your computer has finished rebooting, it will skip the Windows 10 login screen and automatically log in to Windows 10 without a password.
Method 2: Bypass Windows 10 login with Command Prompt
If you want to bypass Windows 10 login password without using any third-party software, the Command Prompt is the way to go. Follow the steps outlined below.
Step 1: Boot your PC from a Windows 10 USB drive.
First, you’ll need to make a Windows 10 bootable USB drive on another working computer, if you don’t have one.
Plug the Windows 10 USB drive into the computer on which you want to bypass the Windows 10 login screen, and then boot the computer from the USB drive.
Step 2: Replace Utilman.exe with Cmd.exe.
After your PC has finished booting from the USB drive, you will see the “Windows Setup” window. Click Next and then Repair your computer.
Your computer will show a blue “Choose an option” screen. Choose Troubleshoot and then System Image Recovery.
You will see the “Re-image your computer” window. Click Cancel and then Next. On the next page, click the Advanced button, select Install a driver, and click OK. This will bring up an Open dialog.

Step 3: Bypass Windows 10 login password with cmd.
When you get to the Windows 10 login screen, click the Erase of Access button in the lower right corner. This will bring up a Command Prompt window.
