    Is there a way to restore the save a password once you have told the computer not to remember it?

    I went to a site I had the password saved and used a number of time but this time it asked for the password I did not know if I had remembered right and entered what I thought it was and it asked if I wanted to save it I clicked no. I had got the password right so I went back and entered the site again but this time I did not get the option of saving the password. Now I have to enter it every time now.

    Under Autocomplete in Internet settings/content.

    "Prompt me to save passwords"

    Although it's best to clear cookies out regulary, just in case you get hacked.

    Thanks but I have just looked there and it is marked to prompt me.
    It is just this one site I once told not to remember, it will not prompt me on. Although it has happened in the past with other sites on my other HD.

    The only way I know works for sure is to go to Content/Autocomplete and clear passwords.
    Unfortunately this will mean you will have to re-enter all passwords again but at least they will all then be in memory.

    I seem to recall a similar question a couple of yrs ago and I think there's an item in the registry, but I don't remember what / where.

    maybe search or ask on a Windows users forum
