Hi! You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change the password expiration period on accounts in Windows 8.
The first thing that we need to do is to press the Windows key and then press "R" on the keyboard
When the "Run" window opens, we need to type in "secpol.msc"
This is the Local Security Policy management menu.
When the "Local Security Policy" window opens, we need to double-click "Local Policies"
Then, we double-click "Security Options"
At the right side of the screen, we need to scroll down to "Interactive logon
Prompt user to change password before expiration". In this case, it is set to "5 days".
To change the "Interactive logon
Prompt user to change password before expiration" option, we need to double-click it.
If we set it to "0", then no prompt will be shown.
We can set the time to "30" by clicking on the setting arrows
Alternatively, we simply type any number
For example, "25".
We can now close the "Local Security Policy" window
