I accidentally deleted all "My Favorites" on my desk top computer. I somehow got them back, but all my passwords have disappeared and I have to re-enter them each time. I've tried several things and nothing helps. I know, I'm 112 years old and can't remember anything. Any help from anyone would help. Does anyone remember my name?

Not sure how windows works as Ive been a Mac user for years.

But I would think that there is a cache of your passwords.

I usually google or you tube those questions try it.

How ya feeling buddy?

You back at it yet?

You are Larry Norton. I keep all of my passwords written on post it notes under the key board. Rather old school, but then I am old. Glad to see you are back active on the board.

Been there, done that.

Same thing happened to me. I cleared out all my history not reading it will delete all passwords.
I keep all my passwords on an spreadsheet and yes, you have to enter your passwords at least once. Windows should keep them or give you a choice to save them.

somewhere in "settings" you should find "manage passwords" it will be a list of passwords and where they are used.
