Change User Password via Command Line

Posted on 26th December 2012 in Computer Tips, Windows OS

Open up a command line prompt (Run -> Cmd) and type the command “net user {username} {new password}”

You have to run the Command Line as Administrator (right click and “Run as Administrator”). Substitute {username} with the required username you wish to change and substitute {new password} with the password you want the user to be set to.
