    How to View 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.

    This tutorial will show you how to view saved passwords for sites in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.



    Here's How:

    1 Open Microsoft Edge.

    2 Click/tap on the Settings and more (Alt+F) 3 dots menu icon, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)

    3 Click/tap on Profiles on the left side, and click/tap Passwords under your profile on the right side. (see screenshot below)

    If you do not see a left pane, then either click/tap on the 3 bars menu button towards the top left OR widen the horizontal borders of the Microsoft Edge window until you do.

    5 When prompted by Windows Security, choose how you want to enter your password, PIN, or Face for your account in Windows 10, and enter any required credentials to approve. (see screenshots below)

    You will only need to do this the first time you click/tap on the Show password (eye) button for a site.

    6 You will now see the saved password for the site shown under the Password column. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,

    Hi @Brink

    Is it possible to hide username list in "Saved Passwords" section? Or just show them as stars (like passwords)?!
