Forgot my windows computer's login password, how can I remove?

I forgot my Windows 10 administrative password and can't find it to save my life! Am I stuck having to wipe and reload my computer? Or is there a way I can use to reset it or remove the log-in screen. I do not want to lose everything!

One simple question, did you sign in the computer with Microsoft account?

NO, didn't sign that account, it's local account, so, how can I reset it?

I tried many windows password reset tools like ntpasssword, iseepassword, ophcrack, but none of them works.

it keeps saying: not table found, what did I miss?

It is much simple for local account password. You can boot into safe mode and make a bootable disk  in there. Or use command promots to reset the password. Here are a few nice tutorials about windows password reset:
