This answer shows how to change your network password if you have to use OC credentials to log into your computer (mostly faculty and staff). This is the same password you use for your OC Web Applications.
You cannot change your computer log-in password while you are off-campus.If you change your OC network password via from the Password Change Page while you are off-campus, it will work for your web-based authentication (e.g. webmail, blackboard, or MyOC), but your computer login password for both Mac and Windows will remain the same until you are on campus again.
- While logged into Windows, hold Ctrl+Alt+Delete to reach a page of options.
- Select Change a password...
Changing Your Password

Please note the OC Password Requirements
If you have forgotten your password, please visit our answer for a forgotten password.
If you are not logged into your account but need your password reset, you will need to contact Support Central. If you are off campus and need your password reset to log into your computer, you will need to come back to campus for the reset to effect your computer login.
