Customize View

Password Depot has a highly flexible interface that can be modified in the View tab according to your requirements.

The user interface consists of a maximum of five simultaneous windows or areas: password area, navigation area (with or without databases on a potential server), statusbar, toolbar, and details (or favorites).

Password Area

This is the main window. It is therefore placed in the center of the screen and cannot be closed or hidden.

This windows provides access to your passwords, showing all the passwords from the selected folder in the navigation area to the left.

What is shown is the description of the password, along with additional further information, e.g. user name, last change ("modified"), URL, and category.

If the details view is enabled, you can select the details that should be displayed by right clicking on the details bar.

By right-clicking on an entry, you open the password menu. The menu's functions can only be used, however, if the information needed for this function - e.g. a TAN - is existent. With this menu, you can:

From within the Password Area window, you can also move passwords from one group to another. Just select the passwords you want to move in the navigation area to the left of Password Depot (which means this feature needs to be activated) and then drag & drop them into the desired group.

Navigation Area

This area offers a tree structure of the folders inside the opened database, similar to Windows Explorer. Additionally, it also displays the Favorites, the Recycle Bin and the Search Results after a search for quick access.

If you are using the Enterprise Server, here you can quickly access the files from the server here as well. To display the files in this area, click on View and activate the option Databases on Server. The files on the server are only displayed if you are connected and logged in to the server.


 If you have set the Statusbar function under View, you will find a blue bar at the bottom edge of Password Depot, including information for version, license status (or remaining days for the trial mode), number of objects, "local system" (or network), and overall statistics (number of folders and passwords/entries).


Above the navigation and password areas, you will always find the Toolbar, offering quick access to Password Depot´s important core functions, e.g. its Database Manager (first symbol to the left) or Password (create new password, third symbol from the left). Further to the right, there is a box/field for a file path as well as the basic search function ("Search entry").

Details (or Favorites)

This window is situated on the far-right side of the screen. Its purpose is to display the information about a selected password in a more compact space, so that it is easier to read and required passwords/entries can be identified quickly.

If you set Favorites, you can access your favorites through this area. For this purpose, click on View and then choose the option Favorites.

Sort by

Here, you can choose how password entries are sorted, e.g. by their Description or Importance.


Here, you can decide if the sort order should be in Ascending or Descending order.

Group by

Here you can choose if and how the entries should be grouped. They can be grouped by their type or category.


Here, you can choose between Password Depot´s Expert and Beginner modes - or set your own Custom mode.
