Question: do not know admin keychain password

I do not know the admin keychain password and can therefore not change it to match my login. How do I retrieve it.

Basically there is no method to recover a Keychain's administrator password without deleting the Keychain. There is a reason for that. It's called security.


So, at best, you can reset the Administrator password for your Mac, and then, protect a new keychain with it.
