you will still need your current password in order to modify it! Have a look on Chrome (if you use that) to see if it has saved it in settings/passwords. You will still need your Windows password or pin to access it. If you dont use Chrome then perhaps someone else can help.

if you can log in one one machine, go to your profile page and change the password, accept the new password, and use that to log in  with all machines.

to find your profile, as far as I can see after a quick look,just  click on your own forum name in a previous post and that takes you to "profile", then there's a button "modify profile", click on that and a drop-down menu appears, click on "account settings" and another page appears, and amongst other things there is the option to change log-in.

If you are really dead-set on keeping the old password, you are, I believe the technical term is "stuffed" (other versions are possible...) as you can't remember it! Can't speak for certain for this website, but some formats don't allow even the site owner to see user passwords.

apologies to Spurry, I didn't read what you had written, so my repeat is not required  :''

At the top right of the screen there are three dots. Click on that and go to 'settings'. It should say Passwords, and 'saved passwords'. look for rcmf.co.uk and the password should be a number of dots. Click the 'eye' symbol next to it and it will ask for your windows password. Click on  'more choices' and put your pin in. (or your windows username and password- I dont know those!) it should then reveal your password.
