I sent an earlier ticket but can not find it listed. I was instructed to find the user config. I had a hard time finding that. Turns out since it was on a Windows 7 machine I was looking in the wrong place for the user.config.

Anyway I found the file and now just need one question answered.

The origina question was how to remove a saved password from Cyber Duck. Told to edit the above mentioned file. So I opened the file in notepad as it is an xml file. Looking around I found what I think is correct.

Do I simply find the login I want to remove the password from and delete the contents of the Value entry after the account name or do I delete the entire entry including the word value or is it something else I need to clear.

That's it.

You can remove the entire entry with the key with the format ftp://username@hostname. Note that the password is encrypted with your Windows login credentials.
