How can I make a .htpasswd page?

When I try doing it using wordpad, I cant save it as .htpasswd, it tells me, I need a file name.

I am using windows vista.

Can anyone help? Explain it to me like I am a 3 year old.

I'm no Windows expert, but a little googling led me to these instructions...

  1. Open Notepad or any other text editor.
  2. Put in what you want in the file.
  3. Go to Save As, and put ".htaccess" for the filename, including the quotes.

Save as a text file using any filename, such as htpasswd.txt. Then go into windows explorer, find the file and rename it whatever you want.
