I have previously used MySQL for a class about a year ago and not since. I've forgotten the password and I need to use it again. I don't need to be able to access any previous databases, so I tried stopping the service in command prompt and uninstalling then re-installing MySQL but this still resulted in me getting stuck at the "Accounts and Roles" section of the MySQL Installer where it asks for my root password.
Is there a way I can reset it or start a new root account all together? I've seen tutorials for Ubuntu but I'm not knowledgeable enough yet to translate this to windows.
