Create and Change Password in Windows 10: You are at liberty to create and change your password in windows 10. Even if you don’t have a treasure map located in your files, your Windows password is still very important.
If you suspect someone has your password, you’ve been re-using passwords and decide to be safer, or simply feel like changing it, Windows 10 gives you three different options to go about changing your password.
You can always choose a regular new password–we recommend using a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Usually, it’s best if these passwords are at least eight characters long.
Although we advise you to use an alphanumeric password format because it’s safer, you can also change your password into a pin or picture that lets you sign in to your Microsoft account quicker.
Also, literally keep your eye out for Windows Hello, which allows you to sign in to your account through iris, face, or fingerprint detection. New PCs will ship later this year with this new technology. Don’t wait until then to change your password if you need to!
