    I'm out of ideas.

    So you don't sync your passwords, correct?

    Not sure what you mean by that.

    This is what I do with a number of web sites that I am registered with such as this Forum. I log in put in my username and password and click "Would you like to store your password" or whatever the site might say. So every time I return to that site I am already logged in. Then from time to time I delete Browsing History including saved passwords and then when I return to those sites I have to log in again because my log in details have been removed. No problem. Now quite simply my saved passwords are not being removed but do not appear under Credentials (Which I didn't even know about until it was mentioned on this thread). I haven't made any changes and can only think that it is something to do with the Faa Update.

    Do your saved passwords appear under Credentials in Control Panel?

    What I meant by snycing. If you sign in with MS account and you have that syncing option on it saves your password in MS cloud (account).

    So you delete of device but I'm wondering if they are being feed from cloud when needed.

    I don't let browser save passwords. Not sure if they fix but Edge had, at least did, some sort of flaw. I use a passwords manager with no connection to cloud.

    I should also add I don't use Edge. I have Apple and MS devices. At the time Chrome was the only cross platform browser of the big three or four (Edge, Safari, Firefox, Chrome)

    I have a Microsoft Account and sign in with a PIN. If I turn off Sync in Settings it doesn't make any difference. The passwords are still not deleted.

    I use Edge but not a lot. Also I downloaded Chrome last week when I didn't want it on an update from CCleaner, very annoying but I didn't see or clear the tick box. To completely remove Chrome is a problem.

    Ken, could I ask you to do something for me please. When you are logged into this Forum could you have a look under Web Credentials/Web Passwords and see if the Ten Forum web details are there. Mine do not appear.

    No problem. As I said I do not save passwords in browser but sure, I can try.

    So I went to Edge, went to TenForums and signed in. I removed the check mark for keep me signed in.

    I enter user name and password. Edge prompted me is I want to save password. I said yes. Went to Credential manager. Top of list, actually only one, Tenforums. So it did as it is supposed to do.

    To erase I went back into settings, Advance Settings and down to Passwords. I clicked on "Manage Passwords", then click on little X beside Tenforums. Went back to credential manager, site gone. Shutdown Edge. Started and type Tenforums.com. Took me to sign in page.

    I will note I deleted passwords using the "Manage Passwords" in Advance Settings.

    Different than yours as you said no Credentials are showing in Cred manager.

    Do you have another machine that you log into with your MS id? Is it displaying same behaviour?

    Thanks so much Ken. I replicated you procedure exactly using Edge and everything worked perfectly.

    I usually use IE 11. So I did the same using IE and all worked well until I got back to the Win 10 Forum log in page having deleted everything and I found that I was still logged in although Web Credentials was clear and I had deleted Passwords in Browsing History. This must be an IE problem and is typical of all the other web sites that I have logged into and relied on Delete Browsing History/Passwords to remove my logged in status. It no longer works in IE since the update. I will have to make sure that I do not save passwords using IE in future.

    Thanks for your help.

    Very cool. As I said I don't use a browser to save passwords. Edge is leaky and I'm just not sure about the others. The info is way to important.

    I use a password manager, fully encrypted. I can sneaker net onto phone and tablet so my passwords are always with me.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Ken. I meant to say that I don't have another machine to try this out on but will find someone with a Fall set up so I can see what happens with IE on another computer.
