  • There are two kinds of passwords.  There is LiveID (Passport), has
    both an email address and a password as part of the credentials
    and which I presume you are talking about, and there is a
    conventional password.

    Maybe you could be the first to report getting into your file without
    remembering your credentials. Note discussions including "ElComp" in this
    thread:

    Also note hleofxquotes discussion of passwords.  See

    I suggest you write down each email address you might have used. Then write
    down all of the email addresses you might have used. Think of permutations.
    Keep paper and pencil by your bed in case you think of something to try.
    Think of all of the places that you may have written down your credentials.
    Even the passwords for other applications may be useful, since many people
    will use similar passwords for different applications.

    You must tick the "I want to sign in to Money directly, without
    access to all online services.  " To get that choice, ou may have
    to disconnect from the Internet.  Start Money, and try to log in
    offline.  Try all of the permutations you can think of.  Write down
    what worked.  We did have one poster succeed in remembering the
    credentials.

    Do not attempt to change your LiveID.  In any case, you will need
    to use the credentials that were in effect at the time that you
    saved that Money file.
