    Microsoft Edge Password Manager


    Hi,

    I have just upgraded to Windows Ten and very impressed so far. I also really like Edge, but have a few issues which hopefully I can get help with.

    1. The password manager does not work and neither does the autocomplete forms. They are both turned on in advanced settings and I have rebooted to no effect. I do not get offered to remember passwords and the "Manage passwords" is empty. These features work great on both Chrome and Firefox which I may have to revert to if this cannot be fixed.

    2. The Home button if shown does not take to the Home page you have set, it takes you to the Edge Home page so I have had to add an link to my Home page on the favourites bar. I cannot see an option for a new tab to take you to you own home page it offers start or blank.

    3. I cannot see a way to edit and rearrange the favourites bar as you could easily do with IE, Chrome or Firefox.

    I hope someone can help with the above as I do really like Edge and I have searched the web for answers to no avail.

    Hi, considering just the password issue..

    First,let's check 'offer to save passwords' is on - from what you say, you should be seeing this:

    Note that you should also turn on the “Save form entries” option as well.

    The bar at the foot of the browser offering to save the password only appears when you click 'Login' (or equivalent).
    What happens when you click 'Login' having filled the credential fields?

    For reference (I'm assuming you've done all this):

    (I'm betting you've done all the above, but not heard of difficulties with this ...yet.)

    2. The Home button if shown does not take to the Home page you have set, it takes you to the Edge Home page so I have had to add an link to my Home page on the favourites bar. I cannot see an option for a new tab to take you to you own home page it offers start or blank.

    How to set your home button if you have not done so is
    go to the 3 dots

    Left click
    Then Settings
    Then advanced settings

    Then home button
    Type in what you want it set as
    Mine is Bing
    Then click
    Save

    If you have done that already then
    I do not know what is causing the problem

    Thank you.
    I don't use Edge, but you have provided a good source of information that is worthwhile to keep on file.
