Windows 8.1 Password

    Windows 8.1 Password

    Hello all,
    I have a new desktop H.P. All-in_One with Windows 8.1 installed.

    When I activated it, I entered my Microsoft password for my e-mail Outlook account. I didn't realize it was going to be my sign-in password.

    I would like to change the password.

    Now being the sharpest knife in the drawer, I don't know how to do this.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks for reading my post.

    \Okay, so I found out how to do the password change. Mark this thread as solved.\
