I have my data set encrypted with a password and selected to store online account passwords along with. I can't find any way of accessing any of the stored passwords when the time comes to re-set one of them. Where do I find that?

Thanks,
Dan

    Hi Dan,

    It is my understanding that you cannot actually access the internally stored passwords.

    In order for you to update/re-set your password(s), you would first need to 'Forget' them.

    If memory serves me correctly, 'Forget Online Passwords', forgets ALL online passwords so be prepared to re-enter them all.

    Okay, not exactly what I was looking for but that's it. I was hoping it
    would be more along the line of Quicken where I could open a dialog to
    change them as needed, but this is fine. As much as I want to dump Quicken,
    there were a lot of things I really liked about it. I suppose MD's method
    is more secure, even though after using Quicken for 20 years it was never
    an issue.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Well this feature was aggravating enough when it worked, now it doesn't. I'm on build 1652 Windows 7--I think it must have been a recent build update that broke it. Tonight I entered an online password incorrectly; bracing myself for the task or re-entering all of them, when I clicked on Online>Forget Online Passwords, nothing happens. The pull down stays down, and the button just stares at me like "what?". Now I have a password in limbo that I can't correct.
