Change windows password using CMD

Spread the love

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to change username password using cmd. This is the fastest way to change your user-name password as you don’t has to open up your control panel  and look out for account option and then change your password. Just follow this simple trick and you can set new password within seconds and you can even remove password as well.

Step1: Boost up your windows (any one you are using right now). 

windows 7

Step-2: Go to “Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories“(for windows 7, Vista). Right click on the “Command Prompt” and select “Run as Administrator“. 

You can also use “windows + s” key and type “cmd“. Right click on the result and select option “Run as Administrator” (for windows 8, 8.1, 10).

open up cmd

If you are not the administrator, then you are prompted to enter the password, or else you can proceed to step-3.

Step-3: Now type the following command and hit Enter:
Type “Net user”

Here our user is H.A.W.X (administrative account). So now the main part, changing password
Now type “Net user H.A.W.X *”
( here we are using H.A.W.X for telling you, in your case replace H.A.W.X with you’re user bame )
Now Press enter

Now you will be prompted to enter password, enter your password or leave it empty if you don’t want to set any password. 

Note: –  For windows 10 and 8, this trick only works if you set password on you’re local account.
