How do I change my password?

I have a Stack Exchange account but can't seem to find the option to change my password.

Help please?

I'm assuming "I have a Stack Exchange account" means you have a Stack Exchange ID.

On your user page, click "Edit Profile & Settings", then "My Logins" (or, just "my logins" if the site still hasn't got the new profile page), then you should see a change password link next to your Stack Exchange login:

change password link on my logins

Alternately, go to https://openid.stackexchange.com/ and login. At the top you'll see a "change password" tab:

If your OpenID provider is somewhere else then as ChrisF commented, the process varies

It looks as if the site is down openid.stackexchange. Am I the only one who is seeing problems ? – khalooo Jul 20 '14 at 10:14
Found out the solution from huha's answer – khalooo Jul 20 '14 at 10:25
Why does the passworts have to contain upper letters? From a cryptografic perspective it shrinks the possible key space! – velop Feb 23 at 19:49
@velop That's kind of the point, it prohibits keys that are easily brute-forced. From a cryptographic perspective all restrictions "shrink the keyspace", but that doesn't mean they should let your password be "password" – Michael Mrozek Feb 23 at 19:52
@MichaelMrozek True when I think about, it shifts the probability from one peculiarity to different ones like Password, PassWord, PaSsWoRd, so in reality it spreads the choosen passwords more equally over the shrunken keyspace. – velop Feb 25 at 10:05

The "my logins" link can be found here:

my logins link

After clicking it follow Michaels answer.
