Reset Password

I thought there was a way for an administrator to reset a user password.  I am unable to locate the place to perform that action.  It's been a long week, can someone point me in the right direction?

    On the Windows zone, make sure that the membership setting in the web.config for requiresQuestionAndAnswer is set to "false". This will allow administrators to reset passwords without knowing the user's question and answer. In fact, the link to reset the password will not show up unless this is set to false. After setting it to false, administrators and users with Full Control will see the Reset Password on the Manage Users in Authorization Store page.
