    How to Enable or Disable Suggested Passwords 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.

    Microsoft Edge can now help make the task of creating new accounts on the web a little easier and safer. When you are on a website that requires a new password, you can simply select new the password suggested by the browser. Password suggestions are strong, unique, and automatically saved in your profile's saved passwords. Next time you visit the same website, your username and password will be auto-filled for you. If you are using Microsoft Edge on mobile and syncing your data, then the passwords you generated on your desktop will also be available on your mobile device.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable suggested passwords in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

    Requirements to turn on suggested passwords:

    1) Turn on sync for your profile in Microsoft Edge.

    2) Turn on sync for passwords.

    3) Turn on offer to save passwords.

    I thought I would give this a go as my list of passwords is getting a bit muddled! But so far I have not found any websites where the "create password" box produces an offer to create one for me.
    I have checked the settings as per your screenshot and they are OK. There are a couple of extra buttons now, but they seem self- evident.
    What I am doi8ng wrong this time?
