comment Opened a JPG picture with notepad, pasted all the “text” to a new notepad file, changed to .JPG and it no longer opens. Why?
@CareyGregory when you deal with binary data in C++ you do not use strings, but byte[], with the length being a different data item (metadata). "Strings" do not need that metadata because an special character (\0) signals the end of the data. Of course, this means that at least \0 is illegal as the content of a string (they could have allowed to register an "escaped" \0, but that would require modifying the raw data too, so it is not a solution to the OP).

I would say split the first column in two and use a dynamic graph/table

For whoever finds this useful --> Control Panel --> User accounts --> Advanced --> Manage Passwords. Names can change a little (I am translating from a Spanish language PC).

@GrahamBorland That other people should refer to MS support, too. So my comment is really my answer.

Since this is the best answer so far and a bounty is a terrible thing to waste, there it goes.

Of course, either barcodes or QR means that fraud (duplicating cards) is trivial.

Yes I checked and most of our desktops (and all of the newer ones) are enabled. I'll look at the BIOS thing, it might be useful as a deterrent (I only knew of old, easily resetable BIOS).
