Windows 8.1 and 7 local password Group Policy

I use the local users group policy to force the users to change their password every 90 days. One thing I have noticed is that by using the line: "net accounts /maxpwage:90"  net accounts (see attached picture) I don't:

 - Lockout Threshold: to Never - which it should be 10 times
 - Mininum password length: to 0 - which should be minimum 8 characters long

This is only for local machine policy!

Can we add to this code line "net accounts /maxpwage:90" those additional options?


Please advice.

According to your screenshot, the minimum length is set to 8 already.
But for a complete command, take
net accounts /MINPWLEN:8 /maxpwage:90 /lockoutthreshhold:10

I have try that but it seems to have a error "The syntax of this command is: "message after pressing enter.

Can you spot this line above. There is a syntax error on it"
