    Password change


    I restarted my laptop suddenly had to change my password. I'm the admin and i turned this off. now i cant have the same password because it doesnt meet the required length complexity ect.
    i have everything turned of in secpol.msc and it still wont let me change my password. the notification i get is the following
    resetting my password with command promt
    >Het wachtwoord voldoet niet aan de vereisten voor het wachtwoordbeleid. Controleer de minimale wachtwoordlengte, wachtwoordcomplexiteit en vereisten voor wachtwoordgeschiedenis.
    its in dutch but i have all the settings turned off in secpol.msc
    the weird thing is if i try to reset my password with ctrl alt delete i get the same msg but with domain on the end.
    but my laptop is not part of a domain
    how can i solve this ?

    Are you using a local account or a Microsoft Account?

    MS accounts usually look like an email address.

    Could you translate dutch message, please.

    > the password does not meet the required demands for the password policy. check the minimum password length , password complexity and the demands for the password history.

    Any chance you have a recent system image? or maybe a valid restore point?

    Is there a possibility that when you restarted the 1809 Feature update was applied.
