      When I open a web site, using Internet Explorer, that requires a password, after entering the password there is a small “eye” on the right side of the box that when clicked on will reveal the password. When I go to the same web site using Chrome, I do not get the “eye” to reveal the password. Is there some way to make the password visible in Chrome?  I ask this, as I have some keys on my laptop that are sticky. they either will double enter or will not enter unless hit ‘just right’. I tried to attach screen shots of the 2 web sites, but the files are too large, and I am not able to make them smaller.  Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks to all in advance.

      If I have posted this in the wrong forum, please feel free to move it.

      Open Chrome.
      At the right end of the Menu Bar is 3-vertical dots. Click.
      Click on Settings.
      Under Autofill > Passwords, click on the right arrow.
      Near the right end of each listed Saved Password, is an eye. When clicked, it toggles the hiding/display of the password.

      Edit: The above shows passwords already saved. But maybe you want to see the password as it is being entered? I don’t use IE (just tried it) so wasn’t aware of it’s ‘eye’ display. Sorry.

        OK, this worked. (For a test logging into AW here. I normally use Firefox.)

        (Using Notepad), key the password.
        Highlight it, and Copy-Paste it into the password field for the desired site.
        Attempt to login to the site. If the password is correct, the ‘Save password?’ panel appears, with the ‘eye’ on the Password line.

      paulk,

      Yes, I would like to see the password as it is being entered. Sorry, I did not make that clear in original post.

      Thanks for the above tips, but they don’t seem to do the trick. I guess I’ll just have to put up with the popups saying password not correct.

      I have always thought that that eye was site dependent (of course there may also be browser dependency ) Try a password manager if cut and paste is not to your liking.

      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

      wavy,

      Yes, I guess my standby of “Copy / Paste” will have to do. A bit of a hassle, but, I can handle it.

       

      Thanks, again, to all for the tips and tricks.

      I use a password manager to drag n drop or type the required data. No double keys then.

      cheers, Paul
