Thank you. You showed me clearly how to stop the Edge browser from offering to save passwords. Thank you!! But, to my shock, when I clicked on ‘manage passwords’ to make sure there weren’t any, I found that probably every password I ever entered anywhere was saved, even though I and my husband ALWAYS clicked NO! We have our own program, and have never wanted a browser to save our passwords. I couldn’t believe it. But now, thanks to your clear information, I deleted them all at once, and they are gone. I have also selected the option to have them deleted each time the browser closes, so hopefully, this problem is finished.
Thank you for such clear instructions. worked perfectly to delete one specific username and password.
