While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, users will have to relearn a lot of stuff that they know how to do before. Settings for things like changing the default browser, resetting your Mac, and stopping apps from launching at start-up, now reside in different places. Similarly, the way to change your Mac login password has also changed in macOS Ventura. If you have updated to the latest operating system and want to learn how to change your Mac’s login password, here is how you can do it.
