Windows 10: Windows 10 not saving accounts and passwords

    Windows 10 not saving accounts and passwords


    I have a perplexing issue. My Windows 10 laptop does not save accounts and passwords for sites that I want to do so with. Now, my Windows 10 Desktop PC functions as it is supposed to with no problem, but not my laptop. I have it enabled to do so, but it does not. It asks to save them, but if I log out and log back in, I find that I have to input everything manually. Anybody have an idea as to what might be the issue?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you are referring to saving usernames and passwords in the web browser, right? What browser are you using?
    You could try resetting the browser to see if that makes a difference.
    Reset Internet Explorer
    Reset Edge
    Personally, I wouldn't save logins in the browser - too dangerous. A password manager (like LastPass) is a much better alternative. Unfortunately, Edge does not have extension support yet, but you could use one in Internet Explorer, or any other 3rd-party browser like Firefox, Chrome or Maxthon.

    Hope that helps!
