I have dozens of Virtual PC/VMware images, and can never remember the password for the things.
A cleverer guy than me (Tony Cinanni) suggested this solution:
Set a “Password Hint”. Works with Vista as well.
To set a password hint:
- Start the User Accounts Control Panel applet, which you can find in the Start Menu / Control Panel / User Accounts
- Select the account for which you want to add a password hint (in the above shot, you can tell it’s LimitedUser)
- Click Change the password.
- Enter your password in the two locations and enter your password hint (ie. in my example above, it’s the password), type your password hint, and click Ok.
