OK, did it...but then I x out and opened back up to find the same amount of dots, is there a minimum num of letters or numbers for a password? Do you have to re boot for it to take effect?
"x out?" Do you mean click the X
in the upper right? IMO, it would be better to use File
to exit PCC and any of its wizards. The X
closes but Quit
exits the application assuring you of a clean (nothing left open/running in the background) shutdown of the process.
I would advise against a short password, especially if it is a word found in any dictionary. After changing your password, on logout you will need to give your new password to log in. Reboot is not required.
