What are general settings?

The general settings relate to users. Thus, each user can customize the software to their own needs. The following options can be configured:

Colour scheme

Various Windows colour schemes are available. The colour scheme Colorful provides e.g. different colours which make it easier to distinguish between the modules in the software. If the colour scheme is changed, the client must be restarted.


The user can toggle between English and German. After changing the language, the client must be restarted.

Starting the application minimised in the notification area

You can start the client minimized if you wish to run Password Safe in the background. You will be able to access it through the notification area.

Minimise the application on closing

If this option has been activated, the Password Safe client will not end when the window is closed but will merely be minimised. It will continue to run in the background. It is then only possible to properly end Password Safe via the main menu.

h4.Starting with Windows

Of course, you can start the Password Safe Client directly with Windows.
