How to find saved passwords in Microsoft Edge

Thanks to the new, streamlined interface, locating your saved passwords in Microsoft Edge is not a hard task to accomplish. Below are the exact steps you need to take to see your passwords stored in the browser.

Note that only passwords you have saved will be stored in Microsoft Edge. If the browser doesn’t have your permission to save your password, it’s not going to get stored in Edge and you can’t use the built-in autofill feature.

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge. In the top-right corner of the browser, click on the ellipse icon (this should look like 3 dots horizontally aligned).
