    Will upgrading from win 7 to win 10 still keep chrome passwords?


    I ask this as i currently have no way to do any form of backup and wont be able to for some time but the only things i would need when i do upgrade is my chrome passwords and my steam games as have not long done a full reset using the acer e recovery program. Im using the steam beta client at present and running win 7 home premium.

    Thanks for any help.

    I would not recommend upgrading without a backup. But upgrading doesn't reset passwords you have, as these are data / cookies passed along by the upgrade.

    Sorry, no idea. Not a gamer. But it should move over all your apps and their data, which should include installed games.

    I can't speak for 7->10 upgrade, but when I did 8.1->10 I found that all of my Apps were still there and that included my Steam Apps. Everything worked except for a few minor configuration issues I fixed easily.

    Steam didn't seem to even realize it was on a different OS.
