comment What is Windows' equivalent of the “which” command in Unix? Is there an equivalent PowerShell command?
This only works in cmd, not in PowerShell (in my experience)

comment Why does the windows 8 task manager seem to freeze?
I find this incredibly obnoxious. Would love to hear if there's a way to force it to never pause.

I appreciate the suggestion, Phil, but Ramhound is correct. My issue isn't with trying to change my domain account's password in general, but wanting to change it from my Win8 account specifically - thus getting all my saved credentials updated automatically.

I did the MS account at install. Wish they explained the ramifications then. Oh well.

I'm not sure, hence my question. I could not find any thing that stated that the Change A Password tool is not available in that case. I'm not sure what this site is for, if not getting knowledge from people with more experience than yourself. If I could find the answer on google, I wouldn't have asked. I don't necessarily care about your downvote, but I disagree with your reasoning.

Unfortunately not. I'm not logged into the domain, so my domain user isn't a User of this machine.

How do I specify an arbitrary domain to use? Tried: net user domain\user * /DOMAIN. Seems /DOMAIN means 'use current domain' but this machine isn't on the domain.

I'm trying to change a domain password over VPN, from my local account. On Win7, I could ctrl-alt-del and 'Change A Password...'. That option is not present on my Win8 install.
