This application allow to view the passwords which are hidden under asteriks. If you find any textbox with invisible password (asterisks instead characters), the password may be easily revealed by this tool - just execute it and move the mouse cursor over the textbox.
For example, you have the some program with password line: your mail accounts,
personal code for private folder, login in network or Window login.
It's good because anybody can't use the your passwords.
But let imagine that you forgot some password or can't find
the paper with written security code. In this situation you
must change the password and remember the new one. But you
can't change it because before changing you must enter the
old value for password. This is the other item in standard
security for MS Windows.
I was in same situation when I decided to re-install the MS Windows - I couldn't save the passwords for my i-net connections (with dial-up to ISPs) and settings for my mailboxes before deinstallation. My default dialer and mailer do not allow to view the passwords, save to file or copy to clipboard.
I developed the small program (ShowPW) to hook any standard editbox with asterisk instead password and show the normal value in textbox:
The new our version allow to show the password in browser (Internet Explorer)
As extended feature I added the "Set a password!" button and you may change the "decrypted" password and put it back in "hidden" mode with asterisks.
You can use and deploy this program free without any modifications in archive.
Note that next OSs supported by ShowPW:
