  1. How do I change the password to an online account?


    my brother set up an account without my permission, and refuses to cooperate when i tell him to stop going on my computer, the account has valuable information on it, i don’t want to delete it but i cannot change the password because it is in the other users tab and ab online account. How do i change the password to his windows account in my computer, or atleast restrict him from going on because parental controls on his account do not work

    :)

  2. account password change

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your response.

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

    1. Which version of Windows 10 is currently installed in your computer?

    2. Are you using a Microsoft Account to log into your computer?

    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.
    Microsoft account | Sign In or Create Your Account Today – Microsoft

    • Select Change password.

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

    • Select Save.
    Hope this information helps.
