I ordered a new computer on Dec 31.  Next day the credit card company called and wanted to know if it was a legitimate post and I got an email from the computer company saying my credit card charge had been refused.  I told the credit card that it was a real charge and they told me that they had refused the charge so I should order it again and they would let it go through.  I did that and called the computer company to tell them what happened but it was New Years Day and they were closed. I figured all would be OK but the next day I noticed where I could cancel an order so I did cancel the first order. Next day I got an 2 emails from the computer company telling me that  both computers that I ordered were on the way.  They both came on the same day.  I was able to take one back to the local store and get a full refund but there were a few days when I was worried I'd have two (rather expensive) computers to have to pay for.

My old computer was getting slow. My new one is just like the old one but faster, with more colors and higher definition. I am spending  a lot of time getting the old sites on the new one because I am having to change a lot of passwords because I don't remember the old ones.  The old one automatically signed me in.

Norm, did you get another Mac? I remember you had an iMac. Maybe I am wrong.

If the passwords are saved in the iCloud, then all you have to do is log into the Cloud and your passwords will be there.

I had to wipe out, and re-install my operating system. I thought I would have to re-enter my passwords. The Apple Tech told me all I had to do was sign into the Clould. It did work!

Boy, you were lucky there were no glitches (other than having to take one computer back to the local store). I can think of another billion problems you could have encountered ~ ahhhh, but that's my 'anxiety' lurking around again.

Glad it all worked out for you.

I did get another Mac but I didn't use the cloud before. I did have all the information backed up in Time Machine which uses a separate hard drive but I didn't want to transfer all the information from the old computer on to the new one.

I have a PC. I keep all of my passwords in a book that is made for passwords. It is alphabetized like an address book but it is for passwords. If I didn't have it I would be lost.

I keep all my passwords on the computer and then printed them out but I had them in sort of a code and I couldn't figure some of them out after all.

mine are in a cheap address book, written in pencil. That way I can erase and make changes as often happens when a site says you 'must' change your password. No way can you remember them all, especially when some require characters, numbers, upper and lower case letters, etc.

What gets me is when they say it's the wrong password, you change it to what you thought it was and they tell you that you can't use the same password twice.
