Question about Computers & Internet
Passwords Used on Your Computer
Every time you choose to save a password in an application or on a Web site, the password data is stored in a secure location on your computer.
If you are an administrator, you can access the password data and retrieve a list of passwords that have been used on your computer.
Password data is stored in different ways on PC and MacIntosh computers, but the information is accessible on both types of systems.
Log on to your PC computer with an administrator account.
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Run" button.
Type "keymgr.dll" into the text box and hit "Enter."
The Key Manager utility program will launch and display a list of passwords used on the computer.
Highlight the password item you want more information about.
Click on the "Properties" button on the right side of the window to view more information about the selected password item.
The pop-up window will display the username, password and server address for the selected item.
Log on to your MacIntosh computer with an administrator account.
Open a new "Finder" window by clicking on the icon in the dock.
Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive.
Double-click on the "Keychain Access" icon to launch the utility program.
A list of all the passwords used on your computer will be displayed.
Highlight a password item and click on the "i" button at the bottom of the window to view more information about it.
Hope this helps.
Save and Retrieve Passwords in Google Chrome
Many sites require a user name and password to obtain access to special features.
This includes forum, social and email sites.
Your unique ID and password lets the site customize your experience on the website.
Google Chrome includes a password management function to save and retrieve your passwords.
Open your Google Chrome browser.
Click on the Wrench icon in the upper right corner of the screen and then click "Options."
Click the "Personal Stuff" tab in the Options window. Make sure that "Offer to save passwords" is checked.
Click the "Manage saved passwords" button to see the saved passwords.
Click the website from which you want to retrieve the password to select it.
Click the "Show Password" button to see the password.
Find a Password Using Regedit
If you have Windows set to log you on automatically, you can find the password for your user account by looking in the registry.
By entering the "regedit" command, you can access the Registry Editor and view the password. Keep in mind, however, that this only works if you have Windows set to log you in automatically.
Click the "Start" button and choose the "Run" option.
Type "regedit" and click "OK."
Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon."
Look at the "DefaultPassword" line to view the password.
Almost everything on a computer or on the Internet requires passwords.
If you are like most people, between home, school, work and your social networking, you have a host of passwords.
So what happens when you cannot remember your most basic passwords, such as your Windows password?
There are programs that can find passwords for you, but there is a way to find them without a program or software.
Open your computer's Start option.
Click on Accessories panel.
Under this, you will see the program "Run," and click on it.
You will have a black window with a typing bar that is displayed DOS Mode.
Write down your passwords for future reference.
Type in "cmd" in the blank, then press the Enter button.
You should then be given a screen that looks like the old Disc Operating Screens, just a blank screen with information.
You will see the words "Account information."
Type "netuser/user" and press "Enter."
Computer passwords are a key to our computer and online privacy.
Look at the list of all your computer's programs that appear on your screen.
Pick the program that you wish to change the password for, and after that program name type in "netusername", hit space and and click "star" key.
So if you're Bob, it would read "netuserbob *".
Be sure and put in the name you use for the specific computer you are changing passwords on.
You can then create a new password that will allow you to get back into the program.
If you have forgotten more than one password, you can repeat the process for other programs.
Do not exit the black screen but simply go back to the other program's names and repeat the same process with "netusername *",
Enter, and new password.
