    ---* Disable Strong Password Enforcement and Password Aging *---

    By default Microsoft Windows Server 2012 enforces users in the Administrators group to use strong passwords. Home users often just want to create their own passwords or leave them blank.

    1. Open the Start screen and click the Administrative Tools icon.
