You’ll first need to open an elevated command prompt in Windows 8. This will allow you to open up a command prompt as an administrator, even if you’re not logged in as one. Let’s walk through the process step-by-step.

1. While logged in to either the Windows 8 Start Screen or the traditional desktop, use the Windows Key + X keyboard shortcut to open up the Windows 8 Quick Access Menu.

2. Select Command Prompt (Admin).

3. Depending on your UAC settings for Windows 8, you may get a user access control dialog box like the one shown below in Figure 2. Click Yes if the prompt appears.

Type lusrmgr.msc in the newly-opened command prompt window and press Enter.


5. A window entitled lusrmgr – [Local Users and Groups (Local)] opens. Open the Users folder, and you’ll see a list of all the local users on the current PC. Right-click on the Administrator account and choose Set Password.

6. In the "Set Password for Administrator" Window click Proceed.
