    A useful and well expained article

    No explanation how to change the password of a local user from another user’s account. Specifically, if I normally use a Microsoft account, how do I set/change the password of an already established local user.

    This only works to change your online Microsoft Account password. It won’t change your local account password. I ran through both procedures above, and now my local account password and MS Account password are out of synch. The local one, which I used to change via CTRL + ALT + DEL on Win7, stubbornly refuses to change. How do I change just the local one, the password prompt I see when I turn the computer on?

      In our tutorial, we have a section called “How to change the password of your local account in Windows 10”. Please read it!

        No, he clearly says that he tried both methods including the how to change password of your local account section, and it still wont change, u can go back to the login page and type in the same old password and it will still work, i have the same problem as he does, this tutorial/guide is completely useless

          The problem is not this guide. The problem is that Windows 10 has a bug and caches the old password. I reported the problem myself to the Windows 10 product team. Not sure when they will provide a fix.
