Changing Your Password

First, ensure you’re already logged in to your computer. Then, hit the key combination CTRL+ALT+DELETE. A lock screen will then appear; choose the “Change A Password” option.

Once you choose this option, you’ll need to enter your current password. Then, enter in your newly created password in both boxes. Make sure it’s a combination of letters, numbers and characters. A good rule of thumb with all passwords is to make them complex enough to stay secure from threats, but also memorable enough for you to log in with ease.
