    I am getting some strange results where Autotype is eelcting either the wrong entry or offering two entries where the selection should be unique.

    I have an entry for a site for the Topfield forum

    The title shows in IE and Google broswers as ~ View Topic ~ Log in

    When I use CTRL+Shift+A to enter the autotype  I get offered


    I am unable to work out why Google is offered as a choice.

    Note that the problem appears to be with the google entry as this is offered in other cases as well

    The Google Title/URL are


    The toppy Title/URL as configured into Keepass are

    When I go to the google page I the autotype sequence works as expected

    I would expect the Google entry to match most things if you are running "Google Chrome".
    If it is only the Google entry that is a problem you need to look at what Title you use and any Auto-Type target settings.

    I do have an entry that contains my  Google credentials. I also use chrome as my default browser for historical reasons, no longer valid.

    I am not clear why the term Google in the Title field will match anything opened by the Chrome browser and how can I stop it while still being able to log into Google when I need to.

    There seems to more to the "Title" field that I first realised.

    Paul's post was lost!

    "Possibly. Edit an entry and select Auto-Type.
    Click Add and use the Target window drop down to view the window titles.

    That explains it!!

    The title displayed iin the browser is

    Using Paul's trick to see the title returned this is what I get
    MyAccount - Google Chrome

    Windows Explorer adds
    - Windows Internet Explorer

    Instead of
    - Google Chrome

    The next question therefore:

    How do I eliminate the suffix identifying the browser from any matches in autotype?

    Change the title of the KeePass entry that is for Google, make it something like "Google Account". Add a target window filter under Advanced so it still works in Google.

    cheers, Paul
