    Sure. If they’re not using full drive encryption, you can use the Windows installation media to replace sethc.exe with a copy of cmd.exe (after making backup). Boot back in to Windows and hit shift 5x to open a command prompt with system access. Use the net command to create a new local user and add that user to the local admin group. There’s hundreds of articles and walkthroughs ([here](https://www.top-password.com/blog/reset-windows-10-password-with-sticky-keys/) is one).

    Of course this will only get you local admin access, not admin access to the domain controller. If you need the actual password, try brute forcing the sam database.

    If you don’t own the hardware or software, ask.

    If you don’t receive written permission, don’t hack it.

    Set up your own W10 admin to hack or download one of the hundreds of hackable VMs to exploit.
