Saving log-in data on web browsers like Internet Explorer and Edge makes it easy and convenient to use online accounts, as you do not need to provide the details whenever you want to sign in. The problem, however, is that you are likely to forget the details after some time. If you are in such a situation but would like to use the information elsewhere, then you need a way to recover Windows vault passwords. VaultPasswordView is a handy application for decrypting and displaying passwords and other data saved in Windows vault.

Using VaultPasswordView

VaultPasswordView is a lightweight and portable application that you extract to a folder from where you launch it directly.

When we launched the application, it opened two windows simultaneously. The window that appeared at the front was for configuring vault decryption options. We had the option to decrypt vault files on any system or the vault files of the current user. We needed to type the log-in password when we wanted to recover Windows vault passwords on another system, while decrypting the ones for the current user required running the application in elevated mode.

When we wanted to work on any system, we needed to specify the root folder, after which we could let the application automatically fill all the other remaining configurations if we did not want to do it manually. The option can also prove handy if you are not sure of the details required. When we selected the current user, however, all the other options were grayed out because they did not need to be specified.

As soon as we clicked the "OK" button, the configuration window closed while the VaulPasswordView window instantly displayed the data stored in the Windows vault.

The window was divided into upper and lower panes. The upper pane listed all the items found while the lower pane displayed specific data related to the item that we selected on the upper pane. We could choose to display the entire file or only the decrypted section on the lower pane. When we selected more than one item, the lower pane did not display any data. The status section on the lower part of the window displayed the total numbers of items found and those selected.

The details that we got from the decrypted data included:

  • Item name
  • Item user
  • Item value
  • Modified time
  • Item type
  • Item type guid
  • Decrypted size
  • File name
  • File modified time
  • File created time
  • File size

We could view a summary of all the listed items or focus on the properties of the selected item. We could use the find feature to jump straight to a required item, but the function was more useful with long lists that required scrolling.

The program could compile a report of all or only selected items in HTML format and launch our default browser to display the report.

Conclusion

If you want to recover Windows vault passwords for any reason, VaultPasswordView will make the process easy. You can use it to view the data stored in the Windows vault of the current or any other user.
