Using Stored Passwords

How to transfer passwords stored in KeePass to other applications.

There are many different methods to copy passwords stored in KeePass to other applications:

Text Context-Sensitive Entry List

Depending on which field you double-click in the entry list (main window), different actions are performed:

  • Title field: open the entry editing dialog for this entry.
  • User name field: copy user name to the clipboard.
  • Password field: copy password to the clipboard.
  • URL field: open URL.
    If you hold down the Shift key while double-clicking, the URL is copied to the clipboard instead. This behavior can be reversed by turning on the option 'Copy URLs to clipboard instead of opening them'.
  • Notes field: copy notes to the clipboard.
  • Attachment field: [1.x] copy to clipboard, [2.x] open in internal editor / viewer.
  • Other fields (like time and UUID fields): copy the contents of that field to the clipboard.

Text Drag&Drop

You can drag&drop all fields of KeePass entries into other windows:
