Change Windows Password on macOS

It’s that time again. You’ve got an email from your IT team or an automated message from systems that your password will expire. The problem? You access that server via RDP on your Mac. How do you initiate a password change on Windows from macOS? It’s easy if you’re using a virtual PC (e.g., emulating. Think Parallels or VMware). Through RDP it’s super easy too. But, every three to six months you have to remember how you did it last time. Here’s a quick reminder of the steps:

  1. Access the Windows computer via RDP as usual.
  2. Once you’ve logged in, hold down the “control”, “option”, and “delete” keys.
  3. Select “Change a password” and you’re ready to go.
