Subscriber Don Newsham followed up his earlier question with one to address a problem he was having with Internet Explorer.
Thanks for the info on my "rev" up problem.
How do I delete a password that automatically fills in with Windows I E ? I go to this website and it doesn’t fill in, I put in user name and password,but when I hit submit an extra password fills in and of course the website
rejects it .
First, I reminded Don of some critical information he omitted. He didn’t mention which version of IE he’s using. That would be helpful information when you ask for help about a particular program. It doesn’t always affect the answer, but it often does.
I assumed that Don was using Internet Explorer 9, so I answered accordingly.
IE9 has a function that is designed to delete web site passwords that have been saved. Unfortunately, it’s not very granular — it’s a very coarsely designed function, delete all passwords or delete none of them. (Firefox, on the other hand, let’s you delete the passwords for individual web sites.)
The process to delete the passwords is straight forward:
- Start IE9
- if your menu bar is not displayed, press and release the Alt key to make the menu bar appear
- Click on Tools
- Then, click on “Delete Browsing History…”
- In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, put a check by Passwords (and by anything else you want to delete from the browsing history), and
- Press the Delete button in the Delete Browsing History dialog box.
