Compute Engine generates a random password, but you should change the password to a custom password that is meaningful to you. To set a custom password:

  1. Connect to your Windows instance using the generated password.

  2. After the desktop finishes loading, click the Start menu icon.

  3. Click Control Panel.

  4. Under the User Accounts icon, click either Change Account Type or Add or remove user accounts.

  5. Select the account that you want to modify.

  6. Click Change the password.

  7. Enter in your current password and your new password.

  8. Click Change password to save your changes.

  9. Test that your new password works by disconnecting and reconnecting to the instance using your new password.
