Setting very long passwords in Windows 8

#1
For a very specific reason, I want to set very long passwords in one windows account. Currently I have a 65 letter password set in windows. I want to increase it to possibly 500 letter or more. However, it seems I cant set the password to any longer than 65 letters.

Is there a way I can change some field inside windows, such that I can set longer passwords.

I have already tried "Change password policy settings - Windows Help"

to no avail. I am using windows 8 that comes preinstalled with a laptop. Presumably windows 8 home.

I can go into why I want to set a very long password, but its not very pertinent to the discussion.

Thanks for your time.

The main Microsoft id password is set at their server and cann't be changed from your end. I could make a domain account on a client machine then set the password from MY domain-control 12r2 (or hyper-v) server it sits under because then I have compleat control but 500 keys isn't something I've ever tested.
