Add/Modify entry - Tab Additional

Command line parameters

Specify here the parameters string to be used when opening a local executable file or document.

Example: If you would like to open an encrypted winword document, then select the path to winword (e.g. C:\Programs\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\WINWORD.EXE) in General/URL/Local Document and indicate the path of the document that is to be opened (e.g. C:\mydocument.doc).

If the program you like to open with command line parameters is password-protected and opened via a DOS command line parameter (for example Putty or MySQL), you can use the Insert button to add the user name and password into the command.

Example: The correct way of indicating a command for putty is as follows:
> Create a new password entry.
> Enter your log-in data into the "password" and "user name" fields as usual.
> Select the path to putty: either enter it into the field Default URL/file on the tab URLs, or select it by clicking the icon next to the input field.
> Switch to the tab Additional.
> Into the field Open local file with command line parameters, you need to enter the following: <USER>@12.345.678.123 -pw <PASS> (Replace "12.345.678.123" with your IP address.)
> If you now select the new entry in Password Depot and click F5, putty will open and you will automatically be logged in with your account.

Auto-complete sequence

If you would like to use the auto-completion function, check the according field and select an auto-complete sequence from the list. (This is not needed for the browser add-ons.)

If none of the existing sequences matches, click the Add or Edit button to open the Auto-complete sequences dialog box. Here you can define your own auto complete sequence.

Auto-complete method

Normally, you will not need to change this information, but if you problems with auto-completion of a website which uses a non standard implementation the problems can be solved by changing the auto-complete method.

Preferred browser

If there are several browsers installed on your computer (e.g. Firefox, Opera), you can connect your password entry with the browsers you wish. This can be helpful if specific websites are only shown correctly with a special browser and if you have not configurated this browser as default browser.

Open URL in private browsing mode

If there are several browsers installed on your computer (e.g. Firefox, Opera), you can connect your password entry with the browsers you wish. This can be helpful if specific websites are only shown correctly with a special browser and if you have not configurated this browser as default browser.

Use second password

You can use a second password with a password entry. This is only useful when using the enterprise server, as you can additionally secure important passwords. Other users can only use this entry if they enter the second password correctly.

Use entry with browser add-ons

Here you can determine whether the chosen log-in data should be filled in automatically via the browser add-ons or not.

Change Second Password

Here you can change or set the second password. If a second password already exists, you must first enter the old password before you can change it.

Update web form data

You can manually update the web form data associated with a password here. This can be useful if the autofill via the addons does not work correctly.
