    Hi bikeit

    I assume you are on the new Edge browser.

    Go to Settings > Privacy and Services > Choose what to clear everytime you close browser.

    Review settings, you don't want to clear cookies.

    I also assume you are not using InPrivate browsing

    Do you have any cleaner products running like CCleaner that could be deleting cookies?

    I use CCleaner and save cookies for specific sites. Been doing that for years and years. Open CCleaner and go to Options/Cookies. Best to run CCleaner first to clean your cache completely, then go to every site that you wish to save credentials in, etc. Then open up CCleaner and go back to the cookies and choose which ones you wish to save.

    You need to go thru all the Edge Settings pages, many pages, scroll down each one.
    3 dots > Settings >

    On start-up >
    Don't select "Continue where you left off" use one of the other settings.

    Site permissions > scroll down and check each category is set suitably.

    System > Continue running background apps ... > Off.


    You don't need CCleaner.

    Once again, even if you only use CCleaner for just one thing, the cookie manager in it will keep all of this set for you for weeks. I saved the cookies for GMail and Facebook and this site and a few others. CCleaner is not the evil think that some people make it out to be. Get the slim version from here and nothing else gets added to the download.

    The OP does not use a cleaner and their issue is that they have to sign in each time.

    My question about cleaners was in reference to cookies being deleted.
