How to Reset the Password on an Acer Computer

Save

Because Acer computers use the Microsoft Windows operating system, changing the password on these computers is done the same way that you would change a password on any computer with a Windows operating system. Changing the password from time to time can help reduce the risk of your computer being hacked or otherwise compromised. Microsoft recommends that users change passwords regularly and that users choose strong passwords. Some of the worst passwords you can choose include "password," "123456" and "qwerty."

  • Press the "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. A new window will appear.

  • Click on "Change a password" in this window.

  • Type your current password into the "Old password" field.

  • Type the new password into the "New password" and "Confirm password" fields. Click on the arrow on the page next to "Confirm password." You have now successfully changed the password on your Acer computer.

Tips & Warnings

  • The most secure passwords typically include both letters and numbers.
