Hi guys, how can I change my password in windows 10

I can log in with finger print, pin and picture
But I need the password in order to network my laptop to my desktop but cant remember what the password is.

And I cant seem to find an option to let me change password despite various other log in options

 

Thanks guys

Even if you find the option, you may be out of luck since you have to enter your old password to change it.  If you do a CTRL+ALT+DEL you should see a Change a password option.  You can select that, but I don't know if it will allow you to enter the current password with your finger print.

Well, when people tell me they forgot, or don't know their password I tell them that it is probably the password they use when some tells them they need a password.  Most people have a "default" password that they use for things that require a password.
