How to get the window to remember passwords back.


Hey everyone, first time posting here. New member, I did a search for my topic first and got nowhere. Here's my question, does anyone know how to get the window that says "do you want windows to remember this password" to come back up once you've told it no. If you answer no it never comes up again. I know there is a way to get it to come back up because it was addressed on techtv once but I can't remember how they said to do it. I should have just answered yes in the first place but am a bit paranoid about security. I have since changed my mind on some of them and hate having to type in all that info every time. Thanks for the help. Brian

What passswords? On web pages?
If so, Internet Options/Content Tab/Auto Complete Button/Use Auto-complete for usernames & passwords on forms

Sorry, yes on web pages. Ok, I went to Internet Options/Content Tab/Auto Complete Button and here's what I found:
checked -- web addresses
not checked -- forms
checked -- user names and passwords on forms
checked -- prompt me to save passwords

What do I do now? Do I use the clear passwords or clear forms buttons? If so, won't this wipe out all the passwords I already have stored? If that's the only way to get the "remember this password" window back then so be it but I was hoping for a way to add new ones on web pages that I already said "no" to without wiping out all the ones that are currently working that I said "yes" to. Thanks for the help. Brian

Try unchecking all of those, dumping your cookies and temp internet files, closing your browser window (all that are open), opening a browser window and re-checking the options.

Sometimes a simple toggle of the settings will wake things up. Certainly the easiest fix if it works.
