    After a problem with my computer I had to ask for a password change.

    Understandably the temporary password is a jumble of letters that I cannot remember. This requires me to copy and paste each time I log in.

    How can I change it to something I can remember.

    Easy.......

    Click your member name on the dark blue task bar at the top of every page.

    From the drop down select password.

    This allows you to enter your existing password and replace with a new one.

    Then click save changes.

    ................... but don't forget that if you can remember it it is almost certainly not secure enough.;)
