Windows 10 Home: allow a certain user to have a non-expiring password

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/15

Sometimes it makes sense to have a user never expire the password.

On a non-home editions of Windows, this is easy: just run lusrmgr.msc, then in the UI change the property for the user.

On home editions of Windows, you cannot do this in a GUI: those bits are either disabled or completely unavailable.

I did this on a demo VM system on an elevated command-prompt:

C:\>wmic UserAccount where Name='developer' set PasswordExpires=False
Updating property(s) of '\\DEMO-VM\ROOT\CIMV2:Win32_UserAccount.Domain="DEMO-VM",Name="developer"'
Property(s) update successful.

To show the current state (before I changed it):

C:\>wmic UserAccount where Name='developer'
AccountType  Caption           Description  Disabled  Domain      FullName  InstallDate  LocalAccount  Lockout  Name       PasswordChangeable  PasswordExpires  PasswordRequired  SID                                            SIDType  Status 
512          DEMO-VM\developer              FALSE     DEMO-VM                            TRUE          FALSE    developer  TRUE                TRUE             TRUE              S-1-5-21-2478057260-1439466941-978077079-1002  1        OK
