Windows 7: IE10 Auto-Display Login Username Help

IE10 Auto-Display Login Username Help

In the Firefox, when I go to a site that requires my login and password, when I clik the username field and type the first letter a small display appears with the entire username and I clik it then the cliked username automatically is put in the login username field. Then when I hit tab to go to the password box the field I automatically filled with the password (as large dots). I hit enter and bingo!-I'm in. However, I seem to have somehow disabled this feature in IE10 because it used to do it. Or perhaps I am thinking of IE9 and it is no longer available for IE10?

-thnx

I only upgraded to IE 10 a few days ago and have not had any issues.
.. but each user (I don't store passwords or save history) and each machine is different.

If the next settings are good too, you might try Reset IE settings - there are caveats though - you'll lose ALL customization.

yes, those are good also.

I will hold off on a IE reset, hoping that a less destructive solution is provided.

So I take that an unistall and reinstall is out of the question.

Good luck, I'm sure someone will stop by and offer other suggestions.

yeah, for now. I have other browsers that I can rely on and IE has been sort of a let down in comparison. Still, I hang on to a hope that it can be redeemed eventually ...

I suppose a few easy things to try are,
Restore Advanced settings,
Security section/ Reset all zones to default,
Turn Internet explorer off then turn it back on,

I forget what security suite do you have installed ?

Came back to let you know that you're not the only one

method 1 was uninstall / reinstall IE 10

method 2 seems unintrusive enough

internet explorer 10 autocomplete not working - Microsoft Community

Quote:
Method 2: Create new user account:

For Windows 7:

Create a user account

If the issue is resolved, please follow the instructions in the below link:

OK Bill - I went ahead and did a full IE reset and the 'majority' of the issue is resolved. What means 'majority'? This :

1. Sites that I login to and IE asks if I want it to remember the password - the autocomplete functions for both username & password.

However ...

2. Some sites (this one and a few others) does not ask to remember the password, but it will autocomplete the username. One thing in common among these few sites is that at logout, all display a 'cookies cleared' message. Photobucket, Hotmail.com & Live.com and some others behave in this manner but do not display cache-clearing message at logout.

3. Still, a handful of other websites remain where autocomplete does not function at all.

I hope these symptoms I have described help narrow down the problem.
