Although Facebook doesn't like people completely deleting their accounts, you can close your account so no profile data exists. If you'd like to do so, you can follow this guide instead: http://www.wikihow.com/Permanently-Delete-a-Facebook-Account . If you just want to deactivate your account so it is no longer visible, but available should you want to get it back, follow these steps: http://www.wikihow.com/Deactivate-a-Facebook-Account

If you are talking about a button to save your new password, follow the steps above, as they describe the button you'll need to click. However, if you are wondering where you should write it down so you don't forget it later, hold off on saving it in a place where others could get ahold of your information. If you write a list that isn't visible to anyone else and is under lock-and-key or is stored in a database that contains a password itself, you'll be able to adequately store this password for later retrieval.
