    Response to ‘ How to remember passwords in Internet Explorer’
    When I go to the content tab and auto complete settings the ‘forms’ box is available to check but the ‘user name and passwords on forms’ box and the ‘ask before saving’ box are not available to check. How do Imake them available to check them on?

    Hello Mike,

    This article was published in 2008 so it is likely that you have a much newer version of Windows and thus a newer version of Internet Explorer. What version of Internet Explorer running on what version of Windows were you attempting to use?
