Hello, I have installed n8n Desktop on Windows. I have set up a first workflow.
When I returned on n8n, I was unable to connect. I can’t remeber the password and when I click on “Forgot my password”, impossible to retrieve it.
What is the error message (if any)?
“Please contact your admin. n8n isn’t set up to send email right now.”
Information on your n8n setup
n8n version: 1.4.0
Database you’re using (default: SQLite): SQLite
Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]: ???
Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]: desktop app
You might be able to use the CLI tool to reset the password by using n8n user-management:reset but depending on how complication the workflow was it may be quicker to remove the .n8n folder from your users install path and running it again so that it does the initial setup.
You would need to use something like .\n8n.cmd user-management:reset you might also be able to export the workflow with .\n8n.cmd export:workflow --backup --output=backups/latest/ as well which would save your workflows in a backups\latest folder.
Hi @Prem_Patel, fellow Windows user here, the approach suggested by @Jon should also work on Windows.
Moving or deleting the .n8n folder in your home directory (C:\Users\<username> on Windows) would let you start from scratch with a blank n8n database (without any users or workflows - so make sure to run a backup if you’d like to keep your workflows).
