How to Reset My Admin Password

The Administrator (or Admin) account on your computer is the account that has access to all computer resources and which can perform any task in the operating system. You should occasionally reset the password for the account to help ensure that its security remains uncompromised.

  • Log into your computer with your Admin account.

  • Click the "Start" button, click "Control Panel" and open the "User Accounts" section.

  • Click on the "Administrator" user account and then click the "Change Password" link.

  • Type in your current password for the computer, and then type in the new password you want your account to have.

  • Click the "OK" button, and the password for your Admin account is immediately changed.
