How to View and Manage Saved Passwords in Edge Browser

  • MORE

Like other browsers, Microsoft Edge can save passwords for sites you visit and automatically log into those sites. There are a couple of ways to access its list.

Although not as robust as a dedicated password manager or other browsers' password management features, Edge's saved passwords feature can make it easier to log onto your favorite sites.

    So unhelpful. I've asked and asked and asked and googled and googled how to get Edge to remember a password if you didn't ask the first time you visited a website and there just isn't an answer. If you go to manage your passwords, it doesn't help because the site isn't there if you missed it the first login. From there, it's all downhill in terms of getting rid of passwords. UGH!!!!

    Step 5 to retrieve the saved password is not clear. Off to find a better solution on the net. Please improve.
