Unfortunately with Windows 2012 Terminal Server there is no easy way a user can change passwords.
The standard method is to us the following key combination but this is difficult for users to remember:
In other words press the following keys at the same time:
- ALT Key
- CTRL Key
- END Key
To supplement this method you can create a desktop shortcut with a small amount of VBS script to launch the windows security screen.
- Create a text file called ChangePassword.VBS
- Enter in the following code:
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
To Change Your Password:
Double click on the desktop icon or press the key combination ALT-CTRL-END
The following Screen with open
Click on the "Change a password" link
Enter in your Old Password and your New Password.
Note you will need to enter in your New Password twice to confirm it.
