Tutorial Windows: Show Saved Passwords from Your Web Browser in Windows
A website with at least a little self-respect asks you to create an account, that is inevitably secured by a password. In a short while on the web you end up with a lot of different passwords.
Modern web browsers offer to save your passwords so you don’t have to write down credentials every time you want to use a specific service. However, this can lead to forgetting the password if you don’t write it anymore.
