✔ Best Answer
According to microsoft's website, here's what you should do:

If you have Windows 8.1, you'll need to reinstall Windows.

If you have Windows RT 8.1, you'll need to contact your PC manufacturer.

So other than that, you're out of luck. Unless of course this is your windows account password, in which case you can go online with another computer and change it.

If you have Windows RT 8.1, you'll need to contact your PC manufacturer. as NT56erbx says and you may need to provide proof of ownership. Next time write your password somewhere until you remember it.

lol Are you sure you even created a password? When I got this computer with Windows 8.1, I had no idea what it was talking about when it asked me to enter the password the first time I fully booted it. Turns out I guess I just skipped that step while installing the OS, so the password was blank. Have you tried just pressing Enter?
