Password recovery tools are used to recover or reset lost passwords. Amongst many available for Windows software, OperaPassView is one for Opera browser. It is a small password recovery tool that has the capability to decrypt the contents of the Opera Web browser password file and display the list of all Web site passwords stored in a particular or specified file.
OperaPassView is available as a freeware utility, functional on all versions of Windows Operating Systems starting from Windows 2000 up to Windows 7. It can be used even when Opera Web browser has not been installed on your system currently, as you have the .dat file on your system.
In the OperaPassView window, one is free to select more than one password, copy the passwords list to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and save it using the save option (Ctrl+S) into a text or HTML file.
The latest version of the Opera password recovery tool has some newly added features like,

The application is quite simple as it does not require any complex installation process or additional dll files. It can be simply activated by downloading the ZIP file, extracting its contents on to your computer and running the executable file-OperaPassView.exe.
Once done, the freeware program will automatically try to locate the wand.dat of the current logged-on user and disclose all the Website passwords stored in the file.
