Basically I want to change from bash to zsh so I ran the command
chsh -s /bin/zsh
It then asks me for my password to change the shell but when I enter it it says
chsh: no changes made
How do I proceed from here?

Since changing your shell requires updating
/etc/passwd, it must be done by
sudo chsh -s /bin/zsh $USER
Also make sure
/bin/zsh is listed in
Just in case, login (with the old, working shell) in a text terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2) while you
chsh and logout/login via the GUI, in case you need to fix something.
