I forgot my password and I don't know how to apply the method I found to reset my password

I saw a method to reset it with live cd but I am mainly a Windows user and I don’t know how to “mount the root partition of my main system”. Could someone please tell me what is this partition and how to mount it?

1.Boot the LiveCD and mount the root partition of your main system
2.Use the passed --root MOUNT_POINT USER_NAME command to set a new password
3.Unmoumt the root partition
4.Reboot, and enter your new password
This is the method I found

Have you searched the forum and came across this topic?

And those instructions are not useful for you?
