To change your Windows (computer) password(s), log in to your device using your current username and password.
If your machine has been re-imaged at the Service Desk, Service Desk personnel will provide you with the default password.

  1. Once Windows loads, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and then click "Change a password".
  2. If changing the .\localmgr password, replace the contents of the first text box (which should default to <computer name>\<username>) with .\localmgr. Otherwise, skip this step.
  3. In the "Old Password" field, enter your current password. 
  4. In the "New Password" field, enter your new password.
  5. Retype your password in the next field, then press enter.

If you need assistance with changing your password, please contact the EIT Service Desk at x8989 or
