You know how when you go to a website and type in your name and password and that little box pops up asking you if you want it to remember your password?? Well, I accidently clicked on the button that says don't ask me this question again in the future and now it never asks me! There are a few sites that I want it to do that for... is there a way to bring that back and if so...how??? Thanks
First, clear your cookies, history and temp files.
Next, in your open IE browser window, click on "Tools", then click on "Internet Options", then click on "Content" tab, then "Auto Complete", then check off the boxes under *Auto Complete for*. That should do it.
Oh bless your heart!! Thank you so much for the step by step directions. How did you know I would need them. LOL It worked perfect!! Thanks again!!!
On a cautionary note, it's OK to have IE remember your password for sites that don't involve money, but I strongly urge that you not use it for sites involving money.
For non-money sites, I use the same username and password over and over again, because it doesn't matter. For the few sites where I do money transactions (and I do mean few), I use a password that you wouldn't know unless you knew me, and what I do is save the email from that site in a folder marked passwords, so that if I forget I can check it. But I only click the "rememer me" box for non-money sites.
It is, however, very easy to click that "don't ask me this question again" box and I have come close more than once. I'm glad that Karen knows the answer.
