What are key strokes to clear the ssh password field?

I am using password to logon to my remote server, using ssh. I remember using a certain set of key stokes to clear the ssh password field in Storm, in the event that you typed it in wrong. I can't remember what those keystrokes are and Google search has not helped. 

Anyone can help ? 

Many thanks !

To be honest, I am not sure I understand what set of keystrokes you mean. Is there a reason simply removing the wrong password from the field and typing the correct one anew doesn't work for you?

I very recently switched to using a MacBook and had to install Storm from fresh. When you enter your password into SSH, if you have chosen the save "forever" option, that is it. The password is in there forever. BUT - When using a PC I remember there was some key strokes, like CTRL + something which brought up the tooltip "empty password". As I am setting up my Mac, of course, I am stupid and can't remember my password and of course, I entered, the wrong one. So, I need to clear that wrong password and try again to enter the correct one. This time without the "remember forever" !.

This doesn't ring the bell, unfortunately.

You can do that at Preferences | Tools | SSH Configurations.
