    Hello Ed, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I believe you may mean AutoComplete in IE10. If so, check to make sure that you have the options you wanted checked at step 4 in the tutorial below.

    Hope this helps,

    not so

    I know what auto complete is. I'm writing about the auto forms fill in function.

    Yep, you'll notice that one of the AutoComplete options is for "Forms". You might check to make sure it's checked to see if that was the issue.

    A lot of this also depends on the site as well, and if they allow autocomplete of form history or not.

    This will also not work in an inprivate browsing session.

    If you have any 3rd part programs like CCleaner, it will clear this information as well unless unchecked in the program.

    As a test, place the site in compatibility view in IE10 to see if that may help if it's an issue with the site not working properly in IE10 versus an earlier version of IE.

    For now, have you also tried other browsers like Chrome or Firefox to see how their version of autofill works?

    Some sites do require compatibility mode to get "Autofill" working properly ! I've noticed it on both IE10 and IE11.

    Indeed - if it worked in XP under IE8, did the same site work in Win7 under IE8? If so, did it work in IE9 and IE10? IE8 to IE10 is a pretty huge jump, and while it's possible this has been tested, it's not documented here in the thread so I don't know when it worked, and when it didn't (version-wise). IE10 seems to be a bit more picky about form fill on https sites versus http too, in my experience.
