    You seriously couldn't just search "reset Microsoft account password"?

    You realize a website isn't like being at a department store?

    Is Alexa a member here ?
    I think you'll find it's Alexko - and you'd be better off sending him a pm ;)

    Depending on your browser you use, you can view all your stored passwords (if you store them).

    What you want is a security no no. No services should ever be storing passwords that can be deciphered. They should always be one way ciphers.

    Yeah I was pretty annoyed when the customer service of my ISP spelled my password over the phone.

    Uhhhhhhhhh. Thjst I changed my password to something like : why you can read customer password...

    This thread reminds me: at one point, Office 365 (the enterprise version anyway) would restrict you to using a password with a maximum length of 16 characters. It came up because my favorite password style is basically a sentence, and of all the dumbass things Microsoft could do, why limit a password to 16 characters?

    I ended up using a very short phrase made of mostly swear words. It worked. :)
