PostGres username/pass?

Question

Hi I just downloaded postgres and created a database with some tables. Problem is it never asked for username/password so the username is postgres by default I think.

What’s the default pass? If not, how can I change the user to a new one with a new password.
ISSUE: I use windows.

P.S: I need it to connect to database from java with jdbc.

Here’s a page on changing a lost password:

Google postgresql rather than just postgres or postgres sql to find more relevant stuff.

It’s been a while since I used postgresql, but still see plenty of links when I Google confirming that postgresql starts without a default password (goggled postgresql default password).
