Click on "I forgot my password" option, that appears on the login screen. Or, you can visit this Microsoft Account Password reset link. And, then follow instruction displayed on the screen. After success reset, you can use the new password for login.

IMPORTANT - Microsoft sends a security code on connected Mobile Number. Or, on the connected email account. And, if you don't have access to that mobile number or email account. Then, this method will not work for you.
