When typing my password in a console I sometimes notice I did not write it properly. In these cases, I normally use Ctrl + u to reset and start from scratch.
However, there are cases in which I know I typed everything fine but the first letter. Is there a way to go to the beginning of the word and replace it?
The underlying problem is that I don't know which editor is being run when you type a password. I don't know if I can use
vim expressions and/or the buttons Home in my keyboard.
I do see that Backspace does work, but Home does not, neither the arrows ←. Using Ctrl-a as indicated in Shell: how to go to the beginning of line when you are inside a screen? does not work either.
