Microsoft Edge is a new web browser added in Windows 10, and will be available across the Windows 10 device family. It is fast, compatible, and built for the modern Web.

When you visit a website that requires you to sign in, Microsoft Edge will ask if you want your user name and password remembered. The next time you visit the site, Microsoft Edge will finish filling in your account info.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off the offer to save passwords in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

Turning off the offer to save passwords does not delete previously saved passwords in your Microsoft Edge.
