KeePass 2.12 - Turning off hidden password - When I open an entry, the password is disguised by asterisks. How do I turn off this feature so that I can recall previously inputted passwords?
View > Configure Columns... > Asterisks
This lets you change the setting and set a keyboard shortcut.
Or as it is pre-configured, just hit Ctrl+H!
I had the same question and have found a better solution thanks to answering this question.
The menu item seems to have disappeared somewhere during a version update.
To manually change this setting look in the file
KeePass.config.xml and find the following tag:
<Column> <Type>UserName</Type> <CustomName /> <Width>204</Width> <HideWithAsterisks>true</HideWithAsterisks> </Column>
Only downside is you can't toggle it easily.
In the 'Edit Entry' window, click on the little box (show/hide password using asterisks) next to the password box. It will show the password in plain text.
KeePass will not remember this setting as default. If you want KeePass to always remember your setting, you should go to
Tools > Options > Advanced and mark the checkbox of
Remember password hiding setting in 'Edit Entry' window
which stands at the 5th line from the bottom.
