  • SharePoint Central Administration -> Operations ->Service accounts (Security Configuration).
  • Select “Web application pool” rradio button and then select “Windows SharePoint Services Web Application”.
  • Select appropriate application pool like “Sharepoint – 80” and select “Configurable” radio button.  Enter desired user name and password and hit “OK”. (Do not forget to note existing settings just in case).
