How to edit saved passwords in Microsoft Edge
Following Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge allows editing saved passwords too. The team behind the browser has merged the feature with Edge code, so now it allows editing the passwords you have saved for websites.
Each time you enter some credentials for a website, Microsoft Edge asks you to save them. The next time you open the same web site, your browser will auto-fill the saved credentials. If you are signed in to Edge with your Microsoft Account, you can sync and use your passwords on various devices like PCs, tablets and laptops, and smartphones running Android, Windows, and macOS, as they will be synced. Note that on platforms different from Windows this may require installing extra software.
If you changed a password, you should have wait for the Microsoft Edge offer to update the password. Now you can instantly edit it manually without removing or updating your saved credentials for a website.
The new option can be found in Edge > Settings > Profiles > Passwords.
The option can be already used in Microsoft Edge Canary.
To Edit Saved Passwords in Microsoft Edge,
- Open Microsoft Edge.
- Click on the Settings button (Alt + F) and select Settings from the menu.
- On the left, click on Profiles. On the right side, click on Passwords.
- On the next page, click on the three-dot menu button next to the saved password you want to edit.
- Select the Edit password entry from the menu.
You are done.
Sooner or later, this new feature will reach the stable branch.
The ability to edit saved passwords is not something that we need for every day use, but it is nice to have such a feature in both Chrome and Edge.
Note: If you don't see the feature in your Edge browser, ensure that you have the latest build available. See the actual versions as of now below.
