Most of the users don't generate a recovery key due to which their passwords can't be recovered. If you have generated one, you can recover it through this link:

If you didn't generate a recovery key earlier, you might've recovered it as it saves the profile on the same Desktop. But as you switched to a new one, it may not be possible as it requires files from your old pc. If you can get those, you can recover them and here's the guide to it:
