    For a very specific reason, I want to set very long passwords in one windows account. Currently I have a 65 letter password set in windows. I want to increase it to possibly 500 letter or more. However, it seems I cant set the password to any longer than 65 letters.

    Is there a way I can change some field inside windows, such that I can set longer passwords.

    I have already tried Change password policy settings - Windows Help

    to no avail. I am using windows 8 that comes preinstalled with a laptop. Presumably windows 8 home.

    I can go into why I want to set a very long password, but its not very pertinent to the discussion.

    Thanks for your time.
