Systems administrators that manage local administrative accounts on multiple computers regularly need to change the account password as part of standard security practices. PsPasswd is a tool that lets you change an account password on the local or remote systems, enabling administrators to create batch files that run PsPasswd against the computer's they manage in order to perform a mass change of the administrator password.


Copy PsPasswd onto your executable path and type pspasswd with command-line options defined below.


You can use PsPasswd to change the password of a local or domain account on the local or a remote computer.
