    I am constantly forgetting my account Passwords.
    So I have to keep changing them.

    Or if I am at a remote location, I can not ftp in without the Username & pw...

    Is there anyway to see the current PW's?

    I's love to be able to print off a list of Domain-Usernames_passwords.

    Can that be accomplished? / HOW?

    I don't you can print off passwords they would definitely be encrypted

    why a dissapointment?

    Account security is a major point. Giving a way to 'print out passwords' would be a security risk for soemone trying to hack it. Encrypting it completely is the best route in an age of Brute Force attacks and things of that nature.

    Go on, have a guess
    Yup, passwords are one-way encrypted, they cannot be decrypted.
