    Default How can Administrator change another user's password in Windows 10

    Hello

    I am the admin user on my daughter's windows 10 laptop. She has forgotten her password and her pin and so I want to try and change the password. Does anyone know how to do this please?

    I have gone to the 'Family and other people' window and it gives me an option to change the account type. However I can't see how I can change her password.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Open Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage another account.

    Select the User Account and on the next screen, click Change the password.

    You can change the other user accounts password here.

    You can use password reset disk to do , or ,is this a Microsoft account you login with? if so go to account.live.com/ password/ reset and reset the password.
