    Copy saved passwords / account info from IE11 to Edge


    Hi there

    Is there any way to copy the stored passwords / account information saved in IE11 to edge

    I've a couple of account logins (not Banks I hasten to add) on some sites where I can't remember all the details -- logon automatically in IE11 but I need to try EDGE a bit more now and can't remember those details.

    Cheers

  2. How Do I Re-add Web Credential In WIndows 10 Once It is Removed?

    Hi,

    I was having a similar problem. I ended up deleting my stored Web Credential (big mistake!) and IE11 would show the prompt asking me to save it, but the button would disappear before I could click on it.

    I happened to use MS Edge on the same website. It gave me the prompt to save the username/password. Once I clicked to have Edge save, the button appeared to work. The next time I used IE11 to open the site (the site is limited in Edge), my user name and
    password were already filled in (and they were correct).

    As far as updating a saved password to a new one, while the form was filled in using IE11, I removed the saved password and typed in a new one. I was then prompted if I wanted to update the saved password. (If this doesn't work on IE11 for you, maybe try
    Edge?)

    HTH,

    Sara

    Copy saved passwords / account info from IE11 to Edge

    You should be able to find them in Manage Web Credentials in Control Panel. If there are only a couple you can click on "Show" and it will tell you your password and then you can enter it in Edge.

    Both Edge and IE store user id/passwords here I believe but I'm not sure how to make one browser use the credentials saved by the other or even if you can.
