    It looks like Windows 7 but it would help to know specifically which version of Windows you are asking about. – Cand3r Jun 17 '16 at 13:12

Here are a couple things you can try.

Microsoft says that control password.cpl should work from the command line but I am not getting it in Windows 7 on a non-domain controlled computer.

Using the command start control password.cpl may also help.

Here is another command to try rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL password.cpl

If those don't work, you can do it from the command line with net user [username] [newpassword]
