You can change a Windows User Account password on any Windows computer; it makes no difference whether the password being changed is for a workstation, a stand-alone server, or a Windows domain controller. This is true for any Windows machine running NT 4.0 or later. Simply press CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up the Windows Security dialog box, click the Change Password button and enter the User name whose password you wish to change. In the "From" dialog box, either click the correct in the drop-down list box, or manually type in the computer name or domain name that contains the User Account Database where the user name exists.
