If you have a local account and you are logged in, you can change your password after pressing control-alt-del. But it asks for your old password you don't know, so that's not possible.
If you login into Windows with Microsoft (e-mail) account, go to accounts.microsoft.com in your browser and do what they say for "Forgot password".

If no luck with changing your password, what you can do in both cases, is to make a new account with another password. Then, if it is administrator, you can copy files from your old account. Then take some care to not forget it. It's easiest to keep using your old e-mail address then.
Tip: if you don't need a Microsoft account except for your email, use a local account in Windows.
