Changing Your Password When Logged Into 2012 R2 Via RDP

I asked this morning by a DBA at work, how to change your password if you were RDP’d into a Windows Server 2012 R2 server.  An odd request (but valid in this case) and it stumped me.  You couldn’t just hit Ctrl + Alt +Del as it was RDP, but there wasn’t the “Windows Security” option you used to get with server 2008.  I have to admit it really puzzled me, luckily I came across This Article which pointed out the obvious.  Ctrl + Alt + End is the equivalent command when you are connected via RDP.  Once you do this, you can see the reset password option

I had to laugh at this comment on the above article 🙂
