    Does anyone know how to do this? I've got a a password stored in dreamweaver for a site as ******. Is there a way of finding the original? Perhaps in a pref file within Dreamweaver? Or would it be encrypted?

    You can do two things. 1.) Export it, and re-import into another DW installation, or the best one 2.) highlight the password, and drag it into a text editor. Very securely stored.

    Thanks, the highlight tricked worked on my version of CS3 when I tested at home, not with MX in work.

    Worked great, thanks.
