I save website logon passwords in Edge which works fine except after a restart all passwords are lost. Is this normal? Thanks.

No, this is not normal. I just did a clean install of Windows 10 down to the bare metal of my PC and Edge still retained all of the passwords from my previous installation, so definitely Edge should retain all passwords after a simple restart.

If you like you can reset Microsoft Edge default settings.

Thanks. I just did a restart and passwords were saved. So, must be another event causing this. Perhaps updates? I will pay closer attention to see if I can associate an event with losing passwords.
