Change Login Password Expiration Time in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
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.
Now, we set the time. 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.
This concludes our tutorial on how to change the password expiration period on accounts in Windows 8. Thank you for watching VisiHow! If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
