Changing my password

Would someone please walk me through the process? I forgot my original password and now I have been assigned one that has more digits than the combo to Fort Knox. I`m trying to find the way to setting a new password; the alpha/numeric that I choose. Many thanks,
Ballyrick

When you click on your name you should be at your profile, in the top left area is USER CP, which has options for changing everything.

If you or anybody else is interested in good secure passwords, try 'keePass', a free download with a huge password generator. Here's a 25 character example: 5Vv5gns%6TJ

It loads from the task bar and is opened by password. Then you enter website name, user name and generate a password up to 50 characters. To use it just copy and paste, easy peasy.

/\ I like that. But I think the OP was looking for simpler, not 5Vv5gns%6TJ

Point taken and that's just an example of the high security type passwords it can create, but mainly he wasn't sure how to change it but my intention was only to share a great utility, it is simple to use. The program creates the password and all you do is copy and paste. I've got near 50 listings in the index. Just select the link you need then copy user name and paste in the box then do the same with the password.

See? Now I got all your financial access. Just post up a random password and wait for someone to respond like that and you got 'em. My next forum to post on will Birkshire Hathaway.
