How to Change a Password on a Domain


Windows domains provide administrators with the ability to control and maintain network permissions and resources. Users are given permission to access the network when they log in to their Windows machine using the authorized username and password. Users can freely change their password on the Windows desktop client. The domain password is saved on the Windows server and it is used the next time the user logs in.

  • Log into your Windows machine using your domain username and password. After the computer profile loads, hold the "Ctrl" button down and click "Alt" and "Del" keys on your keyboard.

  • Click the button labeled "Change Password." A new dialog window opens prompting you to enter a new password.

  • Enter your current domain password in the "Old Password" text box. Enter your new password in the next text box. Enter it again in the verification text box to ensure you entered it properly the first time.

  • Click "OK" to save your settings. A confirmation window displays. Click "OK." The next time you boot your machine, the new password is used to log in to the domain.
