How To: Reset Your Password Using Apple ID in OSX Lion

Have you ever forgotten your password to your computer? Well you can easily reset it using your Apple ID Login. Note that this does not work for the Login Screen, but does work for unlocking the ability to change settings. Also you must have your Apple ID account connected to your user account, which you can do by going to your account information in System Preferences and signing in under the accounts name. After three fail attempts to unlock the settings a Reset Password button will show up in the bottom. Select that button and a new screen will show up. In the new screen type in your password for the selected Apple ID and then fill in your new password.
