How to Change Your Passwords

Maths Linux System Password

Log into a Maths Linux computer and type passwd at the command line. If you have a Maths Windows account (all new users do), this will also change your Windows password.

If you are sitting in front of a Windows computer you can change your password by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete and then selecting the 'change a password' link. This won't change your Linux password.

If you want to make your Windows password the same as your Linux password then run the command windows_password.
