    Upgrading to Windows 10, About Login Data


    Hi,
    The Windows 10 upgrade app tells me that Windows 10 has arrived on my PC, I just have 1 question away from upgrading : Will I lose login data (cookies) on browser app (especially Chrome & Firefox) and other app (Steam and Origin for example) or those login data keeps intact after upgrading to Windows 10?
    I currently logged in on few dozens sites and it's kinda a hard work if I have to relogin on those sites.
    Thanks in advance.

    Install the add-on Password Exporter, then you can export your passwords to a CSV file and restore them after the upgrade.

    I am not sure if your cookies and logins carry over with Firefox and Chrome or not, though.
