New laptop, how to put administrator password in?

  johnem 16:32 07 Dec 2007

just acquired new Toshiba laptop, did not put admin password in on first start up as not sure what password daughter requires. What procedure should I follow to add this password at a later date. Thsi would be the security password that will need to be entered each time the machine is booted up.

use the accounts/users part in control panel.

johnny, does this allow you to set the administrator password or only other/new users?

the administrator can set any account details.
