You are encouraged to change your lab password. After you have logged in, press ctrl+alt+delete and security window will open. Click on the Change Password button. Enter your old password, then your new password twice. Passwords must be at least 8 characters and should be a mixture of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and special characters. Please do not use common words or names. Changing your lab login password does not change your e-mail or any other password.
Very important: when you are finished using a Lab computer, click on START, RESTART to restart the computer. The next person using the computer will have access to the files stored in your network directory if you don't take these steps to logout. If you don't see the login screen when you sit down at the computer, follow the above steps to reboot the computer yourself.
