===Password Change Procedure===
===Password Change Procedure===
-
When you go to a site which requires a password, PasswordMaker, depending on the settings, will either auto populate the password field, let you right click on the password field and give you the selection PasswordMaker in the context menu (todo: link to context-menu section). Then, depending on whether PasswordMaker knows your master password, or not, it will prompt you for your master password and populate the password box on the site, or just populate the password box on the site.
+
When you go to a site which requires a password, PasswordMaker's behavior depends on the settings. It can auto-populate the password field or, if you right click on the password field, you can select '''PasswordMaker''' in the context menu (todo: link to context-menu section). In either case, if PasswordMaker does not know your master password, it will prompt you for it.  Once PasswordMaker has your master password, it will populate the password field for you.  The generated password could be account specific or based on the default account settings, depending upon how you have things configured.
-
Again, depending on your settings, the password populated in to the password field of the site will either be an account specific, or a default password.
+
Of course, PasswordMaker cannot know the current password for a site (or service) if you didn't use PasswordMaker to create it. You must change the password at that site (or service) to the password generated by PasswordMaker so that PasswordMaker can provide it thereafter. Just log into the site (or service), navigate to the change password form, enter your old password, ask PasswordMaker to generate a password for that site, and put it in the new password and confirmation fields. Here's an animated example of this process:
-
 
+
-
After PasswordMaker has been installed, you should decide whether you wish to log in to your online account, be it a bank account, a subscription type service, with an account / URL specific password, or a default password. The account specific password will be set up with a URL, so that PasswordMaker knows to use those specific settings for the site with the URL set up.
+
-
 
+
-
Of course, PasswordMaker can not and will not know your site specific password, unless you change the password of the site or service to the password generated by PasswordMaker. You do this by logging in to the site in question and select to change the password on that site. Typically, you will supply your old password and then a new password, which you will the have to enter again to confirm the new password. Here's an animated example of this process:
