internet explorerInternet Explorer (like majority of browsers) offers you a very handy feature called “Autocomplete forms” which lets you save passwords and usernames  once you login a web service, such as your email account for example, the first time you use them.  The way it works is simple. Go to the web page containing the log in form, fill in the fields with your data and click the login button. At this point  a pop-up message will ask you if you want to save your password. This brief tutorial will show you how to save your passwords and username automatically,  without this annoying notification!

  1. Click Tools.
  2. Click Internet Options.
  3. Select the Content tab.
  4. Under the  Autocomplete section, click Settings.
  5. At this point, the Auto Complete settings Dialog box will popup. Untick the Prompt me to save passwords check box.
  6. Click OK to save.
  7. Done!

    Aha! I just solved it: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie9-windows_7/how-can-i-get-ie-9-to-save-my-password-when-i/c7c4f85d-45d9-4ae5-900a-a247d45d83cc?page=1

    That answer is a bit brief but he means to go into ‘contents’ – ‘Auto Complete’ and to Delete Auto complete History. I deleted saved passwords & for good meaure restarted my machine. Then I was prompted to save on next logging in & all seems well now!
    Good luck!

    Thanks for sharing this information about the AutoComplete feature. I see that you share some great tutorials here and we’d love to have you share them with us at http://www.twitter.com/IE

    Also, for people looking for the opposite of AutoComplete, you can use InPrivate Browsing. This will open a private browsing session where passwords and history are not saved – http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/What-is-InPrivate-Browsing
