This is by design. The password is unchanged but to not show how many characters there are and give someone looking over your shoulder the extra clue it's 5 characters the box shows 16.
Not a bug.
I have just joined the bandwagon of Win XP users and am being confronted with the following two problems.
1. I like having my list of folders/files in the Windows Explorer being shown in ''Details''. But there is no way I have been able to get this settings to stay in Win XP. When I click on ''Details'' in the drop-down menu, I get it just as how I want it but when I leave that path and return to it later, I would only see icons.
How can I resove this?
2. The other is, I have setup my internet connection with "save password" option. The problem is, when next I try to dialup to connect to the internet, my password would have changed to 16 characters.
Why so and how could it be resolved?
