    Change Password tool

    If you prevent students from using CTRL+ALT+DELETE is there another way you can allow them to change their network password?

    I am wondering if there is a way to shortcut a link to the windows change password, or a piece of 3rd party software to allow users to easily change their passwords.

    I haven't tried this myself, but you may be able to create a shortcut to Control.exe to do what you want.

    Code:
    control.exe /name Microsoft.UserAccounts /page pageChangeMyPassword

    Why would you prevent access to cad? just remove the items from it that you don't want the me to access i.e task manager.

    Its trying to make things easier for younger children in primary schools and staff. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete at the same time is not very easy for them. This is why other companies have integrated password changing into their software. I was hoping there would be something similar for vanilla systems available.
