Thread: Changing Windows Password

    Changing Windows Password

    Does anyone know a way to change the local windows password using Kali? I have a 2012 server on aws I need into. I blanked out the password with chntpw, but when I booted it back up and tried to log in it would not let me because of security issues having a blank password. So if anyone knows how to set or change it please let me know.

    Rename sethc.exe in C:\windows\system32\ to cmd.exe.

    Rename cmd.exe in C:\windows\system32\ to cmd.exe.bak.

    On login screen, press shift five times, it will open cmd as administrator.

    net user yourusername *

    Revert the filename after setting the password.
