    When I go to my E-banking site, it does not even offer me to save password, neither do other browsers, must have something to do with certificates.

    Use Chrome for passwords because as you login it says do you want chrome to remember your password? Click Save password. IE doesn't keep passwords.

    Hmm well maybe it is because I have upgraded a 7 to 8.1 that it does offer me a remember message - but in any case it doesn't alwyas and on my main desktop I also get that certificate message too for my banking site so all in all IE does seems to hve it's little faults .

    It's not because of windows version, it's because of IE 11, i think only httpS sites can keep passwords on it.

    Yep I guess you are right mind you I have to use IE9 on the main machine because of my pay office (health department ) have only just upgraded from XP to 7 and because the health areas use Oracle and Java programs that will not run on later versions of IE than 9!!

    I have some difficulties to follow this discussion now?

    Windows 8.1 Update 1, Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.17126. All passwords and login credentials kept and remembered, only exception being those few https sites that have prevented it which can hardly be considered as Windows' fault. Checking the code for these sites that do not offer saving credentials you always find autocomplete is turned off for that page in its code:

    Code:
    <form id="loginForm" action="login.cgi" method="post" autocomplete="off">
    As autocomplete is the feature in IE11 that also takes care of remembering credentials, they cannot be saved on sites using code as above example or other methods in site code to prevent users saving their credentials.

    My IE11 gives this every time the site itself does not prevent it:
    Click image for larger version

    As the time stamp name of the screenshot reveals, it was created just a few minutes ago. To get the screenshot I temporarily created a new account in one of Microsoft services and logged in to that service first time using these new credentials. As expected, credentials were saved.

    Well Kari I now know that I am officially a geek as you so nicely put it and I know am not that computer literate as most though I do my best.

    Plus yes I have done all those things and beginning to wish I had just put up with the crap as it happens.

    I shall just leave as is - but thanks for the help anyway.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums. Is there a method to upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Win7 without losing any files? Thanks in advance.
Well, we often hear/read that we should update our drivers regularly, as the newest versions provide more security/stability/functionality/other enhancements. On the other hand OEM manufacturers want their customers to rely only on drivers available on their own support pages, not on components...
