    This explains how to do it in simpler terms. Change the password and write ot down. This is for Administrator or standard password replacemnet. If you have FileVault (Encrypted Drive) you may be in for a trip to your Apple dealer:-

    Reset Forgotten Admin & Standard User Password OSX 10.10 Yosemite
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
