    Hello Ngavmot, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If this is for a Microsoft account, then you could use Option 6 or 7 in the tutorial below to change your password.

    I put an arrow in front of the link to help.

    It depends on what type of account (Microsoft or local) you are using to sign in to Windows 10 with.

    Let's start over.

    First, is the account you want to change the logon password for a Microsoft account of local account. This is the account you are using to sign in to Windows 10 with.

    Just clarify, did you want to change your password, or just no longer want to sign in to your account at the startup of Windows 10?

    What happens when you try option 1?

    That's the easiest option to change your local account's password while signed in to the account in Windows 10.
