How to reset your password

Sometimes you may need to manually change your desktop password. This can occur if you need to temporarily give someone access to your account or if you think your account password has been compromised.

In windows, the easiest way to do this is:

  1. Log in using your normal credentials.

  2. Once logged in and on the desktop, press CTRL ALT DEL

  3. This will give you a Windows Menu with options like “lock computer”, “switch user”, “log off” etc and also “change password” - click change password

  4. You will then need to enter the current password and then your new password twice.

  5. Once saved your new password will take effect once you log out and back in again.
