- Firstly, you need to view all the existing users on the machine. To do that, click on Start > Run > and type in CMD. In the command prompt window, type net users and it will list down all user accounts on the PC, hidden or otherwise 😉
- To change the user password, bring up the command prompt window again, and type net user Johnny * . According to admin from Techdo, if the user account has a space between the name, for example John Doe, you need to put the name in quotes, like this net user “John Doe” *
- After you type the command above, the PC should ask you for a new password. Type the new password and press Enter. You will need to press Enter again to confirm the password you have entered. That should do the trick.
