Entering Unicode Characters from an Arabic Keyboard

By dcoyle777 ·
My friend is not able to enter his password on his Window's 10 Operating System. The last time he used his computer, he mistakenly uninstalled the English keyboard. Two keyboards remain for his use: Arabic and Dari (Afghanistan, also Arabic based script). Unfortunately, his Windows's 10 password is Latin based letters. Again, unfortunately, he did not back up his Window's password to a flash drive.
So, the issue is how can he enter his password (latin-based characters) while only having access to an Arabic based keyboard? I thought of keyboarding Unicode characters. That seems possible by entering the four digit Unicode representation (ex.: 0061 for little 'a') and then choosing 'alt x'. However, the four digit Unicode representation for small 'l' is 006c. When I hit the 'c' and then alt x, the Unicode representation for the Arabic letter in that position (ې) appears. Thus, I am thwarted. So, the issue seems to be that I need to be able to enter Unicode characters from an Arabic-based keyboard (not an English or Latin-based keyboard). When I google this, nothing comes up.
