    If they press CTRL + Alt + Del keys after logging in there should be an optiont to change their password. They need to enter their old password and then enter their new password twice.

    Is this what your looking for?

      Or do you mean the user hasn't permission to change their password?
      In Active Directory User and Computers if you right click on the user object you should get an option to reset the password. To check if the user can change their own password right click on the user and select Properties, go to the Account tab and in the Account Options there should be an option to Allow the user to change password.
      I don't know anything about (you or your) computers.
      Research/test for yourself when listening to free advice.
