The name says it all.
This instructable will tell you how to run CMD (Command Prompt) and change the password.

Step 1: Getting the Stuff

Now you need the Application.
Go to http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/command_prompt_portable
I recomend saving it onto a flash drive if you are doing this at school.

<p>hi, im trying to hack into my own computer just to see if i can do it. i go to my guest account and i can see the net user list. but i try to pull up their information and it says &quot;access is denied&quot;</p>
how did he get the change the password line???? <br>i need it!!!!
You type in &quot;net user USERNAME *&quot;, without the quotations and fill in USERNAME with the username @cchou1
sorry about that. I will be removing this instructable and working on it. I will then re-post it drmjj55
<p>you probably wont see this and you probably wont care but if you can get it to open in the lock screen then you have complete access over the whole computer and thus can change the admin password ect ect.</p>
how did that work all it showed was info and logons thats it <br>
i didnt get the change password line. which wondows were you using??
then you tupe in &quot; net user (name of user) * <br>(be aware of the space after the name of user)
Doesn't work when CMD is disabled via Group Policy.
i found a crack around this the other day! download dosbox 0.72 from source forge this is how i play nintendo emulation I had on usb drive at library and tried it and it let me in dos cause it didnt know what it was you have to mount c c:\
its not a crack... its an emulator for dos games...
make shure you get it from source forge they dont have popups or virus<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=52551">http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=52551</a> <br/>
Can't install that software if you're in the Users group.
install on an usb flashdrive...
@echo off command @echo on save as .bat open and you have the unlocked cmd. worked on my schools comps
thats probably batch...<br>Try<br>~~~<br>echo off<br>start cmd /K<br>~~~<br>or<br>___<br>echo off<br>cmd /K<br>___<br>or make a batch file with all containing commands (like you said), but at errors it will throw you out-.-
That works! Nothing fancy though, like being able to hit the up arrow to get the previous commands. Thanks!
i downloaded the software N installed it N opened it N also made it run... but after i type&quot;net user user-name&quot;....i get all the deatils of last log.....but still cant understand how to change password????????.....
you could not change passwords of others, in school it wouldn't even work fo your account, 'cause your data is saved on an other computer...<br>This also only works if you already are an administrator. &lt;---- Most kids forget this...

my administrator is an IT business law teacher and so i need to unlock any type of command prompt before i can log on or change password etc. that makes me shad :(
<pre>to add urself as an administrator typenet localgroup (username) adminstrators /addto find out what groups you have on your computer, just type net localgroupthis is quite useful sometimes cos instead of /add you can put /deland it removes that username from that group.</pre><br/>
Sorry collard41, It might be a localized issue but for me your comment is unreadable, as it runs out of the edge of the text box. Incase anyone else has this issue I have copied your comment below!<br><br>to add urself as an administrator type:<br><br>net localgroup (username) adminstrators /add<br><br>to find out what groups you have on your computer, just type:<br><br>net localgroup<br><br>this is quite useful sometimes cos instead of /add you can put /del and it removes that username from that group.
this is smart and stupid. u do realize that some schools block you from opening applactions from a flash drive?
If I did this, could I have it restore the old password? This is nice, but if it ends up getting me kicked out of school for messing with the administrator password (which would happen) it would not really have done anything for me
You know, you could've just used command.com instead of Command Prompt Portable.
drmjj55 ment to fill in the blank. My user is &quot;nathan&quot;, so type net user nathan to change my password.
I think the best way for you is to reset your windows password. The <strong>Windows password Recovery Tool 3.0</strong><br /> can solve all your problem within a few minutes. Importantly,No need to call a technician, no need to re-install anything, and you certainly don't need to reformat. <br /> it also allows you to <strong><a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/" rel="nofollow">reset windows password</a></strong> with with USB Flash Drive or cd/dvd Disk now!!
acctually there is a much simpler way, look for a program called command.com and it is the same thing. good instrucable though.
Doesn't work unless you're an Administrator.
