    Microsoft Edge Question

    I use Microsoft Edge Browser to set up a shortcut on my desktop to my library.

    When I Log In to the library, I check the box to Remember me on this device.

    However, when doing that, I entered an incorrect User Name. So now when I Log In, that incorrect User Name pops up in the Look-In box. See screenshot.

    I contacted the library and this is what they said:

    Hello again,

    I'm glad you are no longer having a log in issue. Have a look at your browser settings to clear the errant username. It should be under something about forms or saved form data.

    Thank you,

    I have checked my browser settings for a link that would clear my Username entries, but all I can find are links to clear passwords, addresses, etc.

    Is it possible to clear a User Name from appearing in the Look-In box?
