Creating a Bookmark
Enabling ****** Password Display
I wanted to see the password hidden beneath the string of ****'s in the password prompt on the
site I was trying to enter. I looked around the web a bit, and found that there IS a way to do this but the process
is not well documented and - although a bit tricky it is not at all difficult to set up on your PC
I decided to "roll my own" and create a link on my bookmark toolbar that would enable
this display. Before we begin, ensure this page fits on yoour screen by pressing Ctrl-+ (the Ctrl key and the + key
at the same time) until you can read evrything here on one screen. When done here, Ctrl-- (the minus key this time) will return the screen content to its original size.OK? Then here we go:
OK? You're all set, but now you'll want to test what you've created. The following program will do just that - it looks like a login page of some sort but is just a test page; use whatever password you wish. Viewpswd goes nowhere, and the only point of this exercise is to show how Unmask works. Here is the link to test your new Unmask capability:
. Note: after completing the entry and before pressing 'Reset' - test your new Unmask button. After you've tested to your heart's content close the View Password test page.
Your Bookmark Toolbar is now set up to unmask those passwords whenever the need arises.
That's all there is to it! If you see anything wrong or that can be improved on, you can reach
me here Regarding Unmask
