Change password in a remote desktop session

Most Windows users will be familiar with using Ctrl+Alt+Del to change their password on a local computer, and that works well for that purpose. However, that command is not forwarded to a computer to which you are connected remotely, as it triggers locally. So how, then, can we prompt a change of our password without waiting for it to expire?

As it turns out, there is a command to get the same prompt on a remote computer that you get locally; instead of Ctrl+Alt+Del, use Ctrl+Alt+End. From there, simply hit “Change password”, change it and Bob’s your uncle.
