  1. passwords and user names


    Irrespective of using Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome I need to sign in all programs from scratch, plugging in the user name and password, every time I turn on the computer or even sometimes when I just go out of a program and back in. This is true for all programs, eg. gmails, acrobat, squarespace, etc etc. However if I empty the cache, at least with Google Chrome, that is a fix for one session, as soon as I do that all the programs work and are either signed in automatically or at least the password and user name are filled in. Need assistance with this. thanks. Richard Weiner

    • Enter your user name and password, then click "ok"
    • Restart your computer.
    I would like to inform you that it is recommended to activate the password for security reasons.

    passwords and user names

    Will ipconfig return my router user name and password?

    Ipconfig will show you the router address but not the user name and password. I don't know of any way to retrieve the assigned username & password.
