    Step 1. Check ubuntu version installed on comp. Open Microsoft store, open Ubuntu app installed (in my case is Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS then in description note the command for this app, in my case it is “ubuntu2204”

    Step 2: Open command terminal from start menu, type (to change user to root)

    <code style="cursor: text;">ubuntu2204 config --default-user root

    Step 3: Open Ubuntu and type following, give ur username for which password need to be created

    <code style="cursor: text;">passwd username

    Step 4: after setting new password, go back to command terminal and set again user from root

    <code style="cursor: text;">ubuntu2204 config --default-user username
