Reset Windows user password


Recommended Posts

Someone changed the windows password for the local administrator account on a stand alone machine and decided to not write it down!!!


Luckily I had my fantastic PCMonitor installed!  I tried doing this using dsmod and going crazy trying to find it then looked into powershell but both were very difficult to use to do this and did not work.  Again this is a local account and not in AD.


Then I tried the following at the command shell:


net user administrator Password1 and the password was changed!


It would be nice if we could have an interface to change user passwords though... :-)
