Server 2012 How to stop password expiring and how to change password

Ok, I have a home network running Microsoft Server 2012 and the standard password policy requires that the administrator password is changes every 45 days – which although is good practice for a large business network is a little bit more than I need.

So firstly to stop the password expiration policy go to the start screen and type ‘Local security Policy’ from there you can clearly see Account Policy. and just change whatever settings you like.

Then to change a password…


this is in essence the same thing as CTRL+ALT+DEL, it will display the login security screen where you can change the password, lock the computer, shut down, etc.

iPhone 5S isn’t ringing when somebody calls. (Solved)

This one was frustrating, but I blundered into a solution after a minute or two. I imagine it’s a problem with iOS7 rather the phone. First of all I checked all the settings and everything was ok – but STILL the phone wasn’t ringing.

If you’ve checked that a valid ringtone has been selected – super. Next try this, call your phone, wait for it to vibrate. Whilst it’s vibrating switch the ringer (that’s the button on the left hand side at the top) to off, then switch it back to on again.

Why does print screen stop working?

If you have Windows Vista or newer installed, you should have the “snipping tool” available. You can find it here:

START —> ALL PROGRAMS —> ACCESSORIES —> snipping tool.


Go to your ‘start’ screen and type in snip – and it will show up as a program selection.
