  1. Change a standard account password


    My laptop has a separate standard account which I set up for my older son. He forgot his password. In the admin account I can access his account of course, but there is no option for changing the password. How do I reset the password?

    :)

    Before we proceed, I would like you to provide the information stated below:

    To open System Properties and check the version of Windows, follow the steps below:

    1. Open Run Command (Windows button+R).

    2. In the dialog box type control system and hit enter.

    If you are using a Microsoft Account to log into your system and you are unable to change the password, then I would suggest that you sign in online and change your password. Follow the steps below to do so.

    • 1. Click on the link below to open the Microsoft site, and then select
      Security & privacy.
    Create your Microsoft Account Today

    • Select Change password.

    • Enter your current password, then the new password you want, then enter the new password again.

  3. Change account from admin to standard

    Hi,

    To begin with, I would like to inform that in order for you to be able to make changes in your PC, you will require your local account to be an
    Admin account instead of a Standard one. Changing the account to a Standard account will disable your ability to make any changes to your computer.

    If you still wish to create a Standard Local Account, I suggest that you navigate to Settings > Accounts > Family and other Users. Here select the
    current username and click on the Change Account Type
    button and select Standard. This will automatically change your account from
    Admin to Standard, and you will not require to change the username and password.

    In the event that you wish to change the username and password, I suggest that you make changes to the above sited first and then change your account to a
    Standard one from and Admin account.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    How to change Local Standard account password

    Hi,



    To begin with, I would like to inform that you may not be able to recover the password/reset the password for the Standard User Accounts. However, I suggest that you try the steps below and check if it helps

    1. If you have another Local Admin Account in your PC or a Microsoft Account, you can use the account and try to reset the password.

    2. Right click on the Start Menu and select Command Prompt (Admin).

    3. Here copy/type the command below and hit Enter the command

    net user username *

    Note: username here is the username of the account that needs a password reset

    4. You will receive a prompt to enter the new password for the account. Hit enter after entering the first password option.

    5. Once the command runs successfully, reboot your system and check.

    Hope this helps

    Regards
