    Microsoft Edge, Windows Web Credentials Manager - Exporting Passwords. Need Help Please - Thank you! Export my credentials from Windows 7 and import them into Windows 10 :)

    Do you really suggest that one should navigate to tons of websites and use their "Forgot password?" feature to be able to save the web credentials in the new environment????

    There is one workaround where at least the export is fast:

    • Export Web Credentials with a third-party tool, e.g. VaultPasswordView from
      www.nirsoft.net
    • Navigate to the sites one by one.
    • Login using the exported credential info.
    • Save password when the browser asks.
    If Windows Credentials can be exported and then imported through the UI then what kind of "security and privacy purpose" is it to forbid the same mechanism for Web Credentials?

    Let's say ok, there are some "security and privacy purposes" against exporting passwords.

    But what about importing or creating new Web Credentials?

    Why is it also impossible?

    How does IE/Edge stores the credentials in the Web Credentials?

    What API do they call to save the credentials?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. Export my credentials from Windows 7 and import them into Windows 10

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
