If you’re running Mac OS X Lion, Mountain Lion, or Mavericks, you can assign your Apple ID to your user account, which can help when you need to reset your password. Once the Apple ID info is entered, be sure to click the Allow user to reset password using Apple ID checkbox. Now, when you login to your Mac, and you’ve forgotten your password, you can click on the reset password with Apple ID button. You know, the one which lets you get into your Mac at login, or install software, or delete stuff from the Applications folder?

Once you click Set, you’ll enter in your Apple ID information, with the email you use and the password you use for iTunes and iCloud, and click OK. Enter your Apple ID credentials, and you’ll be able to reset your user account password with nary a bit of fuss.

If the little lock icon is locked, click it and enter your admin credentials (which include the password you might forget overnight) to unlock it. If you already have an Apple ID associated with your user account, you can click on the Change button.
