I suggest you ...

Add a "Change Password" link to visualstudio.com

If I'm logged into the visualstudio.com web page it's not at all obvious how I'd change my password. I had to search on the web for about ten minutes before discovering that I need to use https://account.live.com to do this. Please add a link to <username>.visualstudio.com to quickly access the password change page on account.live.com

    This solution doesn't seem to work anymore. account.live.com says it doesn't recognize the email address I use for Visual Studio.

    Another 10 mins wasted here, ending up in a Google search to find this thread.

    Thanks for the comments here. I've been trying to figure out for weeks how to change my password.

    It really shouldn't be that hard to add a link to VSTS, which we mainly use, to update my password.

    but my live password is still my old password and VS.com has me with a new one, I want ONE PASSWORD

    I agree. I have needed to change this password a couple of times over the last 1,5 years and I always forget how I did it last time.

    This is seriously a no brainer. It should not take me 10 minutes to figure out how to change my password.
