Hi,
I'm a beginer with BTC and Electrum. And I Need help on Mac not Windows.

Few days ago I've installed Electrum and create a wallet with a password.
I'm not able to open it because the password is wrong (I dont know why).
I wanted to regenerate the wallet from the seed and create a new one, but when I open Electrum, I have a small popup windows asking me the password for this wallet
How can I open Electrum bypassing this windows to access directly to the main menu?
Sorry for this beginner question !
thanks !

You could always install Electrum on some other device like another phone,laptop,PC.. You could probably install other wallets that have the same Electrum seed support.

I don't really know much about other wallets.

You could also backup your wallet from the Electrum data directory and reinstall your wallet. You will probably be able to recover from seed in a new installation.

The easy answer if that is the case then is to go into System Preferences -> Users & Groups and then after you unlock (click the padlock icon) hit the "+" symbol and add a new user account.  Create a new account on the Mac Book.

Log in to your new user account and restore Electrum there.  One advantage to having it in a separate account (and making sure your regular one is "Standard" not "Admin") is that it provides a little isolation from the regular user account.


You should also be able to move the "default_wallet" to a new location then you could create a new one and restore it in your regular account.  (Or perhaps rename it - in ~user/.electrum  iirc. )
