In Password Depot you can choose from three different modes. The mode you choose determines the functions that will be available.
In order to change the mode, click on View > Mode.
In the Beginner Mode, only the most important and most simple functions of the program are available. Any advanced functions (like Synchronisation, Clean-Up, TANs etc.) are disabled and only available in the Expert Mode and Custom Mode. Due to its restricted functions, the Beginner Mode is especially apt for users who do not (yet) know the program very well and/or who would like to only work with the program's basic functions.
In order to use all functions offered by the program, switch to the Expert Mode. In order to determine yourself which functions you would like to use, choose the Custom Mode.
NOTE: The freeware version can be used only in the Beginner Mode. In order to switch to the Expert Mode with additional functions and settings, Password Depot must be unlocked.
The following Options (F10) are available in the Beginner Mode:
Language: Here you can select the language of the user interface.
Theme: Here you can select one of the predefined themes (skins), which will change the design of the user interface.
Default browser (F5): Select a browser here which you want to use by default. It will be opened via F5 and is preset if you click Open URL/File. You can either choose a browser from the list of browsers which Password Depot has found on your system or define a custom browser by clicking on the Custom Browsers button.
Auto-fill in web forms using add-ons: Check this option if you want the browser add-ons to fill out web forms fully automatically. If you prefer drag & drop or the auto-completion via the flash symbol, uncheck this option.
Automatically select passwords in top bar: If the program is set to the top bar mode and you manually enter an URL into the browser, the program automatically selects the corresponding password (given that there is an entry with a password for the current URL). For this function to work, the browser add-ons must be activated.
Add new passwords from web browsers: If you want Password Depot to suggest to add new passwords while you are surfing the Internet, check this option.
NOTE: All options regarding the browser add-ons only refer to the three browsers Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox, as only these three browsers offer add-ons at the moment.
Here you can select the fields that will be displayed in the main window. Simply check all of the elements you would like to be displayed.
Activate clipboard monitor alert: Activate this option if Password Depot should check before using the clipboard whether other applications are reading the clipboard and might intercept secret passwords.
List of trusted clipboard viewers: Here you can enter trusted applications to avoid that these applications cause a warning message when they access the clipboard. You can also add applications to this list via the dialog box Clipboard monitor alert after an alarm has been set off.
