If you have a Windows 10 IoT Core device and want to change some basic settings, follow the instruction below.
First we need to set up a connection with the device
- Start Powershell (as administrator)
- First start the WinRM service by running: net start WinRM.
- Now run the following command: Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value <machine-name or IP Address>.
Press ‘Y’ to confirm the change.
- Now start a session with the Windows 10 IoT Core device: Enter-PSSession -ComputerName <machine-name or IP Address> -Credential <machine-name or IP Address or localhost>\Administrator. As password use: p@ssw0rd.
|Change Administrator password
Remark: Once this is done, you’ll need to establish a new PowerShell session using Exit-PSSession and Enter-PSSession with the new credentials.
|net user Administrator [new password]|
|Change device name
Remark: You will need to reboot the device for the change to take effect
|Reboot device||shutdown /r /t 0|
