Changing your own password on a RDP session on Windows Server 2012 R2

Some people recommend using ….control + alt + end on a RDP session to bring up that Windows Security screen, but it does NOT work on nested RDP sessions.

This procedure is the only one which worked for me on a Windows 2012 R2 RDP session:

  1. Click Start
  2. Type osk (to bring up the on screen keyboard)
  3. Hit enter
  4. Once the on screen keyboard is open, hold ctrl+Alt on your physical keyboard, then click on the del key in the on screen keyboard.
  5. Minimize the on screen Keyboard
  6. Click Change a password.

 

PS: Thanks a ton for the tip, Bill!
