Cancelling old passwords when logging in

  exdragon 22:01 06 Dec 2008

Hi - a little while ago there was a thread which said where you could look at passwords which you'd set up in various programmes but which were no longer relevant.

All I can remember was that it was on a security tab somewhere and you could delete the unwanted ones. It wasn't in SIW/Secrets.

Can someone jog my memory, please? Thanks.

Go to Control Panel\Accounts and remove those you do not want

Thanks, woodchip, but I don't have Accounts in Control Panel

I'm off to bed now, just in case any more answers come in!

Dont worry about,this isent a live chat room,you must have a windows account,but its not windows account you need is it?

I'm sorry - I'm not with you - somewhere, there's a dialogue box which lists the passwords/logins which you've previously used in various programmes.

The only reason I said I was off to bed was that I feel it's a bit discourteous to ask a question and then vanish!

Will this freebie help? click here .I haven't used it though so can't recommend.

Of course its not discourteous,most people dont expect instant answers,and check a day or two later.

Thanks,rdave13, but I've just found it!

It's in Tools>Options>Security>Saved Passwords, then you can delete any out of date ones. Problem solved.
