    Hello Alfatide,

    Do you mean to change your user account's password?

    If so, then it depends on if you have a "local account" or a "Microsoft account".

    Local Account Password - Change or Remove in Windows 8

    OR

    Microsoft Account Password - Change or Reset in Windows 8

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
