You must remember to say "Izzy Wizzy lets get busy!"

or it doesn't work.

As for forgetting old passwords, just keep them all locked up in a file on your 'puter, Not one called Passwords! Then, if you need to, you can refer to it. It has come very useful over the years, especially when I review the list and realise how many sites that have my "magic password"

This question is a little bit of thread drift, but, so be it--I have been worried about checking this, in case I make an error with the password. Wouldn't such an error result in the wrong password being placed EVERY TIME? I also worry that, even if I do it right, the password might be reset in the future, and I would be stuck with the wrong one in the wand.

Sadly, I grew to depend on the wand for passwords for a few accounts. Then, when the web site was redone, so that the URL was no longer the same, the wand no longer supplied the password, and I had forgotten it (since I had not typed it for years).:(


If you enter the wrong pass, but then try again using the correct pass, Wand offers you a choice with the ones you have previously tried to use. You can simply delete the incorrect one from the list. (It's done /listed/ chronologically IIRC)

You can view your Wand passes with a little known app called Wand viewer or somesuch... I have a copy here on a HDD somewhere...

You can also view some settings in the "Manage Wand Passwords" in the "Delete Private Data" option.

Very good, Giron!

That's the kind of adornment and humor I miss when you are not posting here.

BTW, my screenies are for guidance only, because my setup isn't set up for auto login, so you;ll need to use your initiative and adjust things accordingly...

Check Opera's settings... (Tools > Preferences > See Screenshots)

When you've done that, also make sure CCleaner is unticked in the Opera department...

I ran CCleaner.

When I next used Opera, it did not give me the option of returning to the windows used last time.

When I went to KF, I was a guest, and needed to log in.

Since then, even though I have been getting to choose in Opera to go to the windows open last time, the KF windows only open as if I were a guest.

How do I return to my former situation, with the KF windows opening with me logged in, without additional effort? Do I need to do something different in Opera?



You could simply use the restore function and take the system back to a point in time before you used CCleaner.
