How do I change MySQL's root password using AMPPS?

When I try to change MySQL's root password from AMPPS' home, it gives me an error saying:

Old Password field is empty.

How can I solve this? Which password should I enter in the old password field?

The default password is mysql.
You can easily change it by navigating to http://localhost/ampps/index.php?act=mysqlsettings
