Change user password on Linux
The way to reset one user's password on Linux is opening a terminate and type `passwd`, it will try to change the password of the user you are using and ask you to type the old and new passwords. if the typing is correct the system will ask you to type the new password twice. then the password is changed.

An example:

Quote:[test1@gorden ~]$ passwd
Changing password for user test1.
Current password:
New password:
Retype new password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.

RE: Reset user password on Linux
"Reset" -> "Change".

"it will try to change the user you login and ask to type the old password of the user"

->

"it will try to change the password of the user you are using and ask you to type the old and new passwords"


Other parts look good.
