I just resurrected a password-locked Windows 7 laptop from a pawn shop (a good price and a good challenge). Google is awesome, you can learn how to do anything. The bottom video worked great to bypass the Windows password. I also upgraded (easy, Heater!) to Windows 10 today, more than two years after the "deadline" has passed. Remember the GWX (get Windows 10) app that nagged you mercilessly to upgrade before the July 29, 2016 deadline? Well per https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/
, you just shove a v1809 flashdrive (made using media creator) in the computer's USB slot and click install. Worked perfectly. So if you have an old computer that "missed the deadline", you can still upgrade if you like. I'm pretty happy with Win10.
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
