Hi All,

I'm running Windows XP Home edition with SP2 installed and I'm using IE6 as a web browser.

I need to know how to get IE to save passwords for a couple of sites that I go to and I'm at a loss as to how to go about doing that.

I know that every once in a while IE will ask if I want IE to remember the password for a site but it never asks me that at a site that I want it to remember.

I figure that there has to be a setting, somewhere, that I may have fiddled with that needs to be reset.

Thanks for any info on this subject.

Wendy

IIRC, Windows doesn't actually save passwords. There are several password management apps that you can find in the BP free apps section.

Doublecheck your settings against these to be sure they are set properly >> Internet Explorer 6: Save Time with AutoComplete

There are a few reasons this might be happening:

Please walk me through why IE 6 doesn't try to remember all passwords

AutoComplete for passwords in IE 7 does not work

Hi frankp316 Thanks for the reply. I'll be checking some of those out next.


Hi hillbillygreek, Thanks for the info. I double checked my settings and all of that is already set so I guess I need something else.

Thanks again guys.
