Consider changing your password Pop Up

Currently the machines deployed through LCS runs with the Account Policy that passwords has a 42 days age. Interestingly you should not change the password for servers deployed according to this statement of guidelines.

So if you get annoyed by the reminder to change the password and do not plan to republish the box any time soon, why not go ahead and get rid of the pop up.

Click the start button and type in "local". You should find the Local Security Policy Console.

From there it is just a matter of changing the expiration of the password to something other than 42, or simply set it to 0 for "never expire".

Quick and easy.

Alternatively you can use a Command Prompt (Run as Admin) with the statement:
