Trying to change the user password policy for Windows Server 2012 Domain.  I can get to the correct properties that I need to change but the option to change is grayed out.  How do I make this available for change?

Have you logged onto the Dc using a domain admin account? Once you have logged onto a DC with a domain admin account then open up the GPMC and then you should be able to amend the default domain policy for the user password policy.

Are you talking about the Default Domain Policy? Or are you talking about the Change Password button when the user presses ctrl+alt+del?

If you are a domain admin and it is still greyed out then it is a local policy or group policy blocking this. Take a look at the link below for more details.
