    I am trying to recover my password.. When I go to my

    Show shortcuts
    Click one of them
    Edit Shortcut

    I see the details of the shortcut. But the Password is shown as bullets.

    How can I discover the actual password?

    How can I convert that to a new password?

    To recover the password:

    * In the Finder, choose Utilities from the Go menu
    * Open the Keychain Access application
    * Type the hostname for your server in the search field; you should see a list of passwords, including the one saved for this shortcut
    * Double-click the password entry, and check the Show Password checkbox
    * Enter your Mac system password when prompted

    I'm not sure what you mean by converting the password to a new one. If you change the password for the account on the server, you can type that new password into the Edit Shortcut window to update the shortcut.
