I want Internet Explorer to remember a password to a site I previously said do not remember.

Can I access where that is stored and delete it so the next time I enter my password on that site I am again asked whether to remember the password?

So I must delete all passwords...I cannot identify a website that I had previously declined remembering the password and change it to remember the password? – Bill Dec 6 '13 at 20:41

Is it not possible to access one specific website that Windows was told not to remember the password and change it or must I completely delete all saved passwords and start over? – Bill Dec 6 '13 at 20:55
The ideal for you would be the Credential Manager feature of Windows: Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\Credential Manager. Unfortunately, I never got it to work before on a website. – Rudolph Dec 6 '13 at 21:19
Managing web passwords was added in Windows 8 Credential Manager. Windows 7 only allows managing network credentials. – Damien Mar 6 '15 at 4:53
