Windows mode and Mixed Mode – SQL and Windows. You can go to the below steps to change authentication mode in SQL Server:

Click Start> Programs> Microsoft SQL Server and click SQL Enterprise Manager to run SQL Enterprise Manager from the Microsoft SQL Server program group.
Then select the server from the Tools menu.

Select SQL Server Configuration Properties, and choose the Security page.

@Gouthami 

Here is the difference between Windows Authentication Mode and Mixed Authentication Mode. 

1) Windows Authentication Mode:
Windows authentication mode requires users to provide a valid Windows username and password to access the database server.

2)Mixed Authonctiation Mode:
Mixed authentication mode allows the use of Windows credentials but supplements them with local SQL Server user accounts that the administrator may create and maintain within SQL Server.

I hope it helps.
