If you don't have the password to log in you can reset your password using http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
The username for that is usually root and the password is just blank
You can then find your wordpress database and the wp_users table which will have the user you created and the password
Click edit to edit user_pass's value field and select MD5 in the function column as well to secure your password again
Press Go when you are done
You can view pictures and a more detailed description here https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-reset-wordpress-admin-password-on-localhost/
Hope this helps.
