Way 5: See a list of all user accounts using Windows Password Refixer

Beyond that, you can also see the list of all existing user accounts using the third-party Windows Password Refixer tool. It would be helpful especially when you can't log on to Windows 10 or even can't start Windows 10 normally.

Tips: Windows Password Refixer is a Windows password reset tool designed to primarily help users to reset Windows password. But it also has two other valuable features, allowing you to view all user accounts existing on Windows and create a new admin account for Windows.

Step 1: If you just want to use this tool to view a list of all user accounts that exist on your Windows 10, you can download the Windows Password Refixer tool free on any computer and install it on that computer.

Step 2: Once you have it installed, launch it, and then follow the on-screen instructions to burn it to a USB device or CD/DVD flash drive to create a boot disk.

Step 4: If you boot your computer from that boot disk correctly, Windows Password Refixer should work and appear on your screen. It displays Windows 10 running on your computer and shows a full list of all user accounts existing on your Windows 10, including the disabled and hidden user accounts.
