How do I create a shortcut to Password change screen on a windows 2008 R2 Server

I know you a user can press  CTRL ALT DEL to bring up the Switch user/Log off/Change PW screen, but is there a way to create a desktop shortcut to bring up that screen?

1. Make a new shortcut to cmd.exe
2. Right-click the shortcut, Properties.
3. Target: cmd.exe /k net user username * /domain

That could be made to work.   Currently, I am getting the message " System Error 5 has occurred".  I probably need to run the shortcut with elevated privileges.   Do you have a suggestion on how best to do that?

The other concern is that the NET does not require you to type your current password, so anyone could reset another person's password from the shortcut.  Not very secure.  

I would like to bring up the Windows Change PW screen if possible.   Any ideas on that?

The solution I showed won't work if the user doesn't have admin or change password privilege.
I haven't tried this but I think you could make a Autohotkey script to do it.

Thanks..   Autohotkey was looked at, but I couldn't find a way to do it .  Ctrl Alt Del is protected by the OS.
Someone might have a workaround .

I really want to pop up the same screen as seen when you do a Ctrl Alt Del.

Hi HCSHAW,

It looks like a solution is not possible. Still, I'd appreciate it if you closed the question accordingly.
