I logged onto a site & Windows 7 popped up the box to save the user name & password. I click on it to save my information. I want to remove it from the computer so I will have to type my information in each time. How can I do this? Thanks

  • Please refer to the Window help file for IE on clearing saved information. – Michaelkay Apr 5 '13 at 17:14
  • Which browser? IE? Firefox? Chrome? Safari? Opera? Then, which version? You could have provided a BIT more information. I'm amazed you found superuser.com considering the answer to this question is all over the internet. – jnovack Apr 5 '13 at 17:33
  • Sorry. I use IE. This is the first time I have been on here. I have gotten some good advice from people. Thanks for ALL your help. – Be Phelps Apr 5 '13 at 17:41

You will need to remove the stored password from the browser. These steps differ depending on your primary browser. Since you didn't specify here are the steps for three most common (Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome):

Internet Explorer 10:


(For Internet Explorer after the AutoComplete settings dialog box opens click Manage Passwords afterwards)





  • Sorry about the Internet Explorer document, but I had a lot of trouble finding a good source. It seems that these settings for IE are found in the Control Panel (silly putting them in separate locations). However this article should be a little better: Managing Saved Passwords - Windows – Dion Pezzimenti Apr 5 '13 at 17:20

From your question...

Internet options - Browsing History - Delete... make sure you check Form Data and Passwords.


Control Panel - All Control Panel Items - credential Manager

Check for the saved account under Generic Credentials
