  1. How to reset child's password?


    My son has an account which I have set up through Microsoft Family. I did not pay attention to the password when I was creating it because I was assuming I could reset it once it is needed. As it appears - there is no such option on the family account page. I cannot reset the password using the online form. I believe the account did not even have enough information for this page to work.How can I reset my son's password? I could remove his account altogether and create a new one, so why I cannot reset the password?

    :)

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We understand that you are trying to change the password for your child account. We will assist you with this issue.

    • Is your child account configured on the same PC which you are using?
    • Is the child account a Microsoft account or a local account?

    If the child account is local account, then try these steps from an administrator user account:

    • Press Windows key+ X, select “Control panel’.
    • Click on ‘View by’ option on the top right and change it to “large icons’.
    • Click on ‘user accounts’ and then click on ‘manage another account’
    • In the list, click on the child account and then click on ‘Change password’.

    If the child’s account is a Microsoft account, then you can reset the password by following this link:
