Step 1: Open Microsoft Edge
The first step is to open Microsoft Edge, which is the default browser in Windows 11. If you’re using an older version of Windows, you’ll need to download and install Edge from the Microsoft website.
Step 2: Click on the Three Dots
Once you have Edge open, click on the three dots located at the top right corner of the window. This will open the Edge menu.
Step 3: Click on Settings
From the Edge menu, click on “Settings” which is located near the bottom of the list.
Step 4: Click on Profile Settings
In the settings menu, click on “Profile Settings” which is located on the left-hand side of the screen.
Step 5: Click on Passwords
Under “Profile Settings,” click on “Passwords.” This will take you to the passwords settings page.
Step 6: Turn off Offer to Save Passwords
On the passwords settings page, toggle off the “Offer to save passwords” option. This will prevent Edge from asking to save your passwords in the future.
Step 7: Clear Saved Passwords (Optional)
If you have previously saved passwords in Edge and want to clear them, click on “Manage passwords” and remove them one by one.
1. Will turning off “Offer to save passwords” delete my saved passwords?
No, it will not delete your saved passwords. It will only prevent Edge from asking to save new passwords in the future.
2. Can I turn the feature back on if I change my mind?
Yes, you can turn the feature back on by following the same steps and toggling on the “Offer to save passwords” option.
3. Is it safe to save passwords in my browser?
It’s generally not recommended to save passwords in your browser as it can pose a security risk. It’s best to use a password manager or other secure methods to store your passwords. Overall, disabling the annoying pop-up message asking to remember passwords in Edge is a simple process. By following these steps, you can save yourself from the hassle and focus on browsing the web without interruptions.
