    Password set unchangable


    I'm thinking about letting a kid have a personal account. Is it possible to set the password unchangeable?
    Which I think would not be as offensive as using my Administrative authority to override changed password.

    Hello Ron,

    Sure, you could prevent the password from being changed on any account you like. It's a good idea for a kids account.

    The method in the tutorial below will work in Windows 8 as well.
