In this One-Minute Wednesday, we’re going to look at how you can reset your password in Windows 10. While you can always call your IT support team for help with updating passwords, this video will show you how to do it on your own so you can save time and get back to what you were doing sooner!

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.
