I have Windows CE on my PDA.  Using Calligrapher, yesterday I set my password.  Now, using the password that I selected and confirmed, I cannot get past the password screen.  (It cannot recognize what I thought that I had entered.)

How can I “clear” this screen and use my PDA again?  (Next time, I’ll use the keyboard.)

If you don't have anything worth saving cold boot.
else do backup of files.

Unfortunately, Full reset probably.
Remove batteries, main battery?

I had hoped that there was a secret code (or procedure) that could get me past the password.  But if there was, the reason for the password would be defeated.

Regardless, using the keyboard, I tried lots of different capital/small letter combinations of my password.  Then I tried a "space" at the end of the password.  IT WORKED!!

Bottom line:  Don't use Calligrapher to input your password!!
