View Full Version : Re-activating "The wand" in Opera 9.5

18-10-2009, 07:36 PM
I must have clicked on the "Never on this site" button when I was asked if I wanted the wand to remember a password and now I have changed my mind.

Does anyone know how to get the wand to come back on an old page ?

Go to Tools > Preferences > Forms > Password Manager and find the website that you have "lost" the wand to. If you type its name in the box with the magnifying glass it will come up with some choices.

Click on the website and delete it. You may have to delete the entries underneath before you can delete the main one. Click OK to exit.

Browse to the website, log on as usual and Opera will now ask whether you wish to save the password or not.

Thanks, Foxy but it's not quite like that in version 9.5 - so seeing 10 is official I've upgraded and can now see the website in the box with the magnifying glass.
Unfortunately there are no choices and I cannot delete it.

It all might be in here -
"C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxx\Application Data\Opera\Opera\wand.dat"

trouble is, it's encrypted.

Another option would be to go to Tools > Delete Private Data. Click on "Detailed options" and put a tick in "Clear password manager". Remove the ticks from the other options if you do not want them cleared.

Note that this will clear ALL passwords.

I was afraid you were going to say that.:(
