Windows 10 - How to set new password with command or Local User Group ?


Recommended Posts

I can not do anything with any user in the "Local Users Group"
I tried from my account but I could not change my password (ie set new password)!
But I was able to activate the Administrator account and I logged into the Administrator account and still could not do anything with my account! But I can set the password and disable the Administrator account from my account or Administrator.

Any ideas? (Ignore the click on the Sign-in option in the Change Accout settings.)

It looks like the issues is that account is a not a local user account, but a Microsoft account.  As far as I've found, you cannot change a Microsoft account password this way.  You can however convert the account to a local account which should allow you to change the password in the manner you desire.

      I am trying to auto login to web app that has the following HTML for the username, password and submit button:
      USERNAME:
      <input name="usernameField" tabindex="0" class="inp" id="usernameField" type="text" value="" message="FND_SSO_USER_NAME">
      Password:
      <input name="passwordField" tabindex="0" class="inp" id="passwordField" type="password" value="" message="FND_SSO_PASSWORD">
      Login:
      <button tabindex="0" class="OraButton left" style="padding-right: 6px; padding-left: 6px;" onclick="submitCredentials()" message="FND_SSO_LOGIN">Log In</button>
      Following is the AutoIT script I am using I am passing the username and password via cmd but it is not working, any suggestion?
       
      #include <IE.au3>
      Local $url ="https://www.Intra.edwa.com"
      Local $oIE =_IECreate($url)
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
      Local $oUser =_IEGetObjById($oIE,"usernameField")
      Local $oPass =_IEGetObjById($oIE,"passwordField")
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oUser, $CmdLine[1])
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oPass, $CmdLine[2])
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
      $oLinks = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
      For $oLink In $oLinks
          If String($oLink.type) = "submit" And String($oLink.value) = "Sign In" Then
                _IEAction($oLink, "click")
                ExitLoop
          EndIf
      Next

      Hello everyone,
      I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT company that started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kind of drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation + Configuration of Windows 10.
      The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.
       
       
      ==============================FAQ==================================
      1. Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIt ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BATCH / POWERSHELL / VB) ? A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIt to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found. 2. Q: What do I get from helping/collaborating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsibility to mention you in the credits of this project. 3. Q: If I have more questions, can I ask? A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project! 4. Q: What is the main goal of this project? A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Current progression of the project (more will be added in future)
      « Blue = Info || Yellow = Unfinished/Untested || Purple = Could be better || Green = Done ||Red = Not Yet Started »
      ***Very early Stage ***
      Connect Network Attached Storage(NAS) (Work but missing configuration in GUI - AutoIt only)
      Download & Install up to 600+ softwares (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool + 50/50 Powershell/AutoIt)
       Auto prediction of Apps name of text typed inside input (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change OEM Informations (Tested & Working -  AutoIt)
      Disable hibernation (Tested & Working - AutoIt only)
      Change Computer Name (Work but require testing - AutoIt only) 
      Show Computer Information and Smart status on GUI (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change .pdf / .pdfxml from Edge to Adobe Reader DC (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Change Edge to Google Chrome as Default Browser (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Windows Updater (Seems to work but require further testing - AutoIt only)
      Install Office 365 / 2013 + Activation (To Do)
      Add L2TP VPN Configuration for Windows Built-in VPN (To Do)
      Save / Load tasks configuration profile in (.ini file) to avoid repeating same configuration twice (In progress - AutoIt Only)
      (EXPERIMENTAL) Install Apps from Microsoft Store with UIAutomation UDF made by @junkew(Work if you know what your doing)
         P.S: Installing Apps from Microsoft Store will require usage of  UIA spy tool made by @LarsJ which you can download & learn how to use it on UIA Spy Tool thread.

      Hi All,
      I'm not sure if its possible that I'm trying to achieve, I've looked into https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/AutoIt3Wrapper.html and such resources for help, but I cant really find the answer to my question.
      So upon compiling the script in SciTE, the exe file is given a Description under file Properties>Details. I understand, that  one can enter info manually there and it can even implement the version automatically with each compilation.
       
      What I'm trying to achieve is to somehow include the "@ScriptName" in the Details>File Description Field. But as I see no variable can be taken after "#" in this case.
       
      Do You think its achievable? (Win 10)
       
      Much obliged for taking time on reading this.
       
      Kind Regards,
      Brave

      Hey everyone,
      Was wondering how I would be able to implement this on a local computer instead of using connectserver? 
      Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi,
      I have a specific situation:
      Is it possible to run autoit script/.exe as a task which in turn is automating a desktop user interactive application on windows 10 where user will not be logged in - at best I can get user locked? 
      If so how will this work or is there any tool available to do this?
      I am trying z-cron task scheduler but it runs only some part also I tried windows 10 task schedule with option to allow task to run which is user interactive type but that too does not work.
      Looking forward to hear from you to help me out of this situation.
      Thanks,
