How to Synchronize your new NetID password to your AD joined computer

If you log into your computer with your NetID and password, it means that your computer authenticates against the Queen’s domain upon login.  After changing your NetID Password, the computer login password will be out of sync with your new NetID password.  You will however be able to log into your computer with the last working password that you had previously logged into the computer with.

Pick the connection you currently have and than follow the bulleted steps to sync your password to your computer.

      • Press the "Ctl-Alt-Del" keys.
      • Select "Lock This Computer."
    • Press the "Ctl-Alt-Del" again.
    • Log back into the computer with your new NetID password.
