moderated Re: help changing my password
I noticed on the split topic you created that you did mention that you're using Windows 10.
If you are using a Local Windows 10 User Account, then:
Reset your Windows 10 local account password
I you are using a Microsoft Account Linked Windows 10 User Account the easiest thing to do is open Settings, Accounts, and in the Your info pane activate the Manage my Microsoft Account link and go through the password reset procedure once you're logged in to your Microsoft Account. The change propagates down to your Windows 10 User Account after it's reset there.
