    How to Delete Saved Passwords for Sites in Microsoft Edge Chromium


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    When you visit a website that requires you to sign in, the new Microsoft Edge will ask if you want your user name and password remembered. The next time you visit the site, the browser will finish filling in your account info. Password saving is turned on by default.
