    Do you mean Keychain Access? It's in the application folder under Utilities.

    Thanks! I'm able to access Keychain, but there's a list of all my actual passwords that I must have stumbled upon accidentally. That's what I'm unable to access.

    Can you use Spotlight to find it? Search for one of the account names that isn't common to see if Spotlight has it indexed.

    Have checked Safari - not there and Spotlight seems to have done a disappearing act. Still searching, will keep you apprised. Thanks.
