  • Other Credentials button on CRTL ALT DEL ? Change Password Screen

    here is the situation,

    on my windows 7 computer I log into a computer on my Active Directory (i am the domain admin), i hit CRTL ALT DEL to bring up the system menu, i choose "Change Password)

    Im then taken to the screen where i can specify my old password, and my new password twice...

    under this are i have 2 button's

    1) Other Credentials

    2) Cancell

    as we use multiple accounts in my organisation this )other Credentials is a great way to change a password for another account.

    however...

    im finding not all my users can see this.

    some just see the cancell button.

    is there a group policy somewhere that was edited (im new to the company) to turn this back on globally? Or is it due to my elevated privildge? (my other account i tested it with was a standard user, but it saw the option)

    Thanks everyone for any input you may have on this.

    Much appreciated.

    Wade
