    iMac, 21.5",OSX, 10.9.5. Mavericks. Late 2012. Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5. Memory 8GB.
    Passwords
    Here I am again. Can anyone tell me where I can find my saved passwords ? I'm using firefox, but with XP I could go Tools > Options and get to them. Not the same with the iMac.

    I've been trying to use skydrive for mac, but it won't take my password. I know it's correct but I tried to reset and this is the message I got.

    "
    You can't complete that task here

    To continue, you need to go to your organization's web site."

    Any clues much appreciated.
    Pete.

    Specs:
    Mac Mini (Late 2014) 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 Memory: 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
    Go to Applications/Utilities
    Open Keychain Access
    Find the thing you need your password for and double-click on it
    Check the Show Password box
    Enter your User Password
    Voila!

    Hey thanks for that. It's probably old hat to you, but to me it's brilliant.

    Now for that weird message I got from MS; anyone got any ideas ?

    You can also try this one:

    Click FIREFOX -> Options -> Security -> Saved Passwords.

    If you want to see the saved ones: Click SHOW PASSWORDS

    Actually, the only part of that which I had any prior knowledge of was that the answer would be found in Keychain Access. I just opened it up. The rest I discovered easily due to the intuitive nature of Apple-developed software. Aren't Macs great?!
