Hello Andrew,

Could it be that you are talking about a number of listed (incorrect) usernames that you want to remove  ?

If so : Click the (empty) input field on the web page to open the drop-down list. Then highlight an entry in the drop-down list using the cursor Down key (arrow key). (Don't click the mouse and don't press Enter) Press the Delete key (on Mac  : Shift+Delete) to delete the highlighted entry. Repeat till only the correct username is left. (Don't click the mouse and don't press Enter)

(Hovering with the mouse no longer works)

Question owner

Yes - that is it - I seemed to manage it before - I will try to remember to look that up next time I come across a duff one,

Thank you very much.

A problem for me is that having dyspraxia/DCD - therefore a degraded working memory - I struggle doing sequential tasks where C depends upon doing B correctly after I have done A - if that makes sense -

So I need to be strongly motivated and not time pressed when the situation occurs and persevere until I have repeated the sequence so it becomes familiar - like for example - changing gear in an automobile with a manual change - which we have in the UK and I have used for over 50 years.

Anyway another issue for DCD is going off at a tangent & that I have just done.

Nothing wrong with that - as a matter of fact : I think it's a good thing to 'vent' (and I understand everything you were talking about). Enjoy the rest of your day  !
