    Error in changing password. Doesn't Password Policy Requirement


    Hi,

    I am having problems changing the password of the local administrator in Windows 10 Home.
    Before, I can use a simple password without any complexity. I noticed the changes the first time I used Microsoft Outlook and added my email in the company I am working with. Windows suddenly asked me to change my password with a complexity so I changed it. But I don't want to use complex password when logging in to my PC. I tried to change my password to my simple password but I receive the following error:

    "The password you entered doesn't meet password policy requirements. Try one that's longer or more complex."

    Upon research, this can be fixed in Local Group Policy. However, I can't find this anywhere in my PC. Even gpedit.msc and secpol.msc are not existing. I learned that these are not supported in Windows Home. But why is there a password policy requirement? I can't change my password to a simple one.

    Now I am lost. I don't know how to remove the password policy requirements without the Local Group Policy.

    Note: This is just a local administrator account, not a Microsoft account.

    I hope someone can help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    NO Internet - Wlan password change not possible!


    Are you seeing your Router in the Wireless Connection list when clicking on the icon in the Notification area? If so, clicking your Router's name in that list should give a choice to connect then enter the password you set in the Router. That routine works also in Linux and Mac OS X, not exactly OS/Operating System specific. The afore-mentioned list will usually show a number of Routers around you, most will have a very low strength and should be passworded or locked.
