Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I set up two factor authentication on my Microsoft account (aka Windows Live ID or whatever they are calling it this month). Then I had to setup some application specific password for applications that are two-factor unaware (eg: IMAP clients).

Now, out of security concerns, I'd like to reset two specific application passwords but would like to retain all the others.

I know Google allows this (with Gmail) but how do I do this on the Microsoft side of things (with outlook.com) ? The online portal (https://account.live.com/proofs/Manage) has an option to create a new one or just reset them ALL (Riiight, because entering app specific passwords on devices is fun fun fun!)

And selecting it brings this popup with no-per password selection
