Setting login details for live linux mint xfce

I'm using the live version of linux mint xfce 18.2 to repair my grub2 bootloader. I spend a lot of time looking up articles and in that time the live OS times out and wants me to login. I didn't login when it loaded and have no idea what login details it wants. At the moment I have to reboot each time I want to continue.

Welcome to LQ!!!

mint/<no pwd, hit enter> here. Auto-fix here

p.s. Might ctrl+alt+f2 or f3 etc help? (man chvt)

Hope you can enjoy the fun-puzzles Linux offers

Let us know what works, for future searchers... Mark Solv'd when done.

Tip: BB code tags at bottom of page; also can help post output.
Plug: VirtualBox for pre-linux M$winX. (&Slackware guestGuru)
Best wishes
