How to Change Password in Windows 10

 Even if you don't think you have anything secret in your files, Windows passwords are very important. If you feel that someone else knows your password, then it's time for you to change a new password. Windows 10 provides three different options for changing your password.

You can choose a new normal password. However, I recommend using a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. It's usually best if the password is at least eight characters long. You can also change the password to a pin or image which will allow you to log into your Microsoft account faster.

There's also Windows Hello, which allows you to log into your account via iris, face, or fingerprint detection. Don't delay changing your password if needed!
