Options - Top Bar

In the program's Options (Edit > Options or F10), the tab Top Bar allows you to make settings regarding the position and appearance of Password Depot's top bar mode.

Position

  • Floating: Activate this option to be able to freely move the top bar on the screen. You can additionally activate the option Always top Left to always display the top bar on the top left of the screen, from where you can move it to any position.

  • Always top Left: (Only available when Floating is selected.) Enable this option if you want to always display the top bar on the top left of the screen.

  • Top screen edge: Activate this option to always display the top bar on the top screen edge. Use the options Always on top and Auto hide to further define the behavior of the top bar.

  • Bottom screen edge: Activate this option to always display the top bar on the bottom screen edge. Use the options Always on top and Auto hide to further define the behavior of the top bar.

  • Always on top: (Only available when Top screen edge or Bottom screen edge is selected.) Activate this option if you wish to display the top bar always on top of all other applications.

  • Auto hide: (Only available when Top screen edge or Bottom screen edge is selected.) Activate this option to hide the top bar by default. To have the top bar displayed again, you will have to move the mouse to the upper or lower edge of the screen, respectively.

  • Monitor: If you have several monitors connected to your computer, this drop-down list allows you to define on which monitor the top bar is to be displayed.

Appearance

  • Use theme colors: If this option is activated, the top bar appears in light-blue, and the bar's symbols are colored in blue and grey.

  • Custom colors: If you activate this option, you can determine the top bar's color yourself. In case you select the same start and end color, the top bar will appear only in this one color. In case you select different start and end colors, the top bar will be shaded in a color gradient: starting from the defined start color at the bar's upper edge to the end color at the bar's lower edge. If the colors offered by the software are not enough for you, you can click on Define colors in the respective and will then have a broader choice of colors.

  • Show bar captions: If this option is selected, you will see explanatory texts when you move your mouse cursor onto the symbols shown in the top bar.

  • Show server database selector: This control field only has consequences, if you are connected with the Enterprise Server. If it is activated, there will be a drop-down field in the top bar, from which you can select any file that your administrator has assigned on the Server.

  • Show search box: Here, you can, optionally, show or hide the search field.

  • Transparency of bar: Define a transparency level for the top bar. If you set the cursor to the left, the top bar is clearly visible; if you set the cursor to the very right, the bar is virtually invisible.

  • Length of drop-down lists: This setting refers to the height of the two drop-down fields for groups and passwords. If you set a low value (left), the drop-down lists will be relatively short and can therefore only show up to ten entries at once; if there are further entries, you need to scroll. If you however set a high value (right), the drop-down lists will be long and can therefore show more, perhaps even all, entries.

  • Width of Folder field: Define the width of folder fields.

  • Width of Password field: Define the width of password fields.

  • Width of Search field: Define the width of search fields.

  • Customize Top Bar: Click this button to select the buttons you want to have in the top bar and put them in the order you want to have. Learn more.

  • Large/Small icons: Define the size of icons on the top bar.
