Well it is quite a difficult task to remember all the passwords and if you have entered a password wrong, you will not be able to visit that site or access that account. So the Internet Explorer comes to your rescue as the Internet Explorer has a feature to remember passwords so that you do not have to store countless number of passwords all by yourself. By following the below provided Windows online support guidelines, you can easily save passwords in Windows.


  • Switch on the system and wait for your system to load.
  • After the system loads, access the Internet Explorer either from the Start menu or by double clicking the Internet Explorer desktop shortcut icon or by accessing it from the location in the hard disk.

  • After accessing the Internet Explorer, from the different menus that are present at the top, choose the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options. The tab titled Content will be present and you have to select it and below the Auto Complete setting, choose the Settings option.
