    How to create a password after installation of Win 8?


    If one did not create a password at the time of reinstallation of the Windows 8. Can he create the password after the installation of the Windows 8 and how? If going to the User Account > Create a password reset disk, it will display a removable disk but no C drive.

    The PC Settings page has no Users option but Start, Personalize, Tile and Help. That is the Windows problem. Why can it be created a standard window. So everyone has the same window looking.

    By typing "users" it can quickly access to the users page to complete the creation of the password, however. May I ask an additional question? The user wants to use the PC name but the windows does not allow the user to use the same name as the PC name is. Is there any way to change the PC name after the Windows has already been installed?

    I'm afraid you won't be able to use the computer name as the name of a user. If you like, you could add a number or something to it for the user name to be able to though.

    Do you mean once the PC name is made, there is no way to change it unless reinstallation of the OS and rename the PC?

    No. You can change the computer name if you like. It's just that the computer name and a user's name can't be the same.
