 Lost "password retainer" - Ambo
Up till recently I had a useful gimmick which asked me if I wanted to have my details retained. It was very useful for low-security sites, like this one, as I only had to type in the first letter of my email address for full address and password to show, hence quick entry.

Apart from a brief foray into Chrome, and a quick exit, I am not aware of any changes. I have Windows 7, IE11. Internet Options/Active X/Pop-up Blocker have nothing to offer. Can anyone point me to the correct control please?

Not that familiar with IE but in advanced settings there are some to do with auto-complete which may require turning on, this should mean your email address will show. In Chrome when you first visit a site it offers to remember your password, I guess there is similar in IE. So fix the first bit and the second may resolve itself.

If it's like previous versions of IE, then it'll be in the Tools>Internet Options. Click on the Content tab, then click on the Autocomplete 'settings' and tick the required boxes. Save and exit out of the menus.

But if you have run anything like CCleaner or similar it may well have deleted the records.

I have run CCleaner but this made no difference before.

Fiddling with Content has enabled me to get my email address automatically but still not the passwords.

One of the "tickable" options in CCleaner is to clear stored passwords.

In I.E. Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > restore Advanced Settings or even Reset if the other option doesn't work.
