Windows 8.1
Thank you, ***** ***** process is the same for both.
I will do it in steps
1) Go to and sign into your account
2) Click on the Gear Wheel in the top right and then click on Settings
3) On the next page, click on Account Details (Password, addresses, time zone) under the first heading MANAGING YOUR ACCOUNT
4) If it asks you to, enter your password *****
5) Click on the top menu Security & privacy
6) Then click on Change password ***** you can then change it. This will also then apply to windows as they both use the same password.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
