#191 Question about Groups and Icons for Group Records

Alan Lemly

I need help in understanding how Groups are handled in KeePass. I particularly want to understand the difference between built-in groups such as Internet and Homebanking and those created by the user. I couldn't find any discussion on this on the webpage. When I imported records from my Passwords Max program using the generic CSV import, I imported my Passwords Max Category tag as the Group in KeePass. I had an Internet Category but I moved all of those imported records under the KeePass Internet Group and deleted the one which was created on import. I notice that all the records imported have a key icon next to them in the KeePass record list. I had to manually enter many records that did not import successfully. I notice the ones I manually entered in the Internet group have a different icon next to them in the record list. Can you explain the difference between these records and those I imported and why they are presented with different icons? Am I able to input additional information with one that I can't with the other? Any help you can offer in explaining the distinction will be greatly appreciated.

    Groups are whatever you want. The "built-in" ones are just to help you on your way and can be changed / deleted as required.
    Icons can be changed as required, the key icon is the default.

    Can you provide more info about entries that didn't import and any error messages?

    cheers, Paul
