I had this problem on 2 different shadow configurations where I couldn’t manage my password using netplwiz.
This is not convenient for VR as you might know, and I have never saw anyone fixing this problem so I just wanted to show this fix I found, because I realy think it should have been added to the tutorial.
So some people are able see the checkbox when they op netplwiz:
But some other people newer configurations don’t see that.
The fix I found was opening Registry Editor:
Then paste “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device” in the top bar:
Dubbleclicking “DevicePassword...” and changing the value form “2” to “0”:
At last, open “netplwiz” (again):
Now the checkbox will appear:
I would hope this could help some people out.
