If you're still using the earlier versions of Windows then you may thought creating or changing a password in Windows 8 is same as previous versions. But those who are working with Windows 8 know that this is not same at all.
When you are installing Windows 8 for the first time then you can set a password at the end of the installation process. If you skip that step during the time of installation then you will have to set it from the PC settings.
In earlier versions of Windows password can be managed from a control panel item named User Accounts. This item is still available. But you can't manage your password from here. Today I will show you the easiest way to do this task.
Remember: Your Windows should be genuine or it may ask you to activate windows while doing this task. So, if you have any problem regarding activation then visit: Windows 8 Activation Process.
