  • Control Panel-> Administrative Tolls->Local Security Policy->Account Policy - change max password age to 0.

    There is also command line versions:

    net.exe  user <user> /EXPIRES:NEVER /PASSWORDCHG:NO

    or

    WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE "Name=<user>" SET PasswordExpires=FALSE

  • I think Stuartkfmn's is looking for the UI that provides that option - seems that a component is missing in the image. Unfortunately - I guess it is the "Users Control Panel".
