In Windows 10, passwords on ordinary user accounts do not expire.

Passwords on temporary user accounts do expire.

I came across this video tutorial which uses Kiren's Boot CD; click here

Hope you sort the difficulty, s.

how do I find the actual tabs under my user account to make that PW change?

You can't because you're running the Home version of Windows.

Fruit Bat gave you the fix (twice) and in principle it should work with Windows 10 too. Have you tried it?

It seems that Group Policy Editor is not available in your computer. You can try this method instead. It requires you to boot off a live CD in order to reset its password and set the password never expire.

I hope this helps!
