  • help needed in setting xp to save passwords

    I got my mom a new computer, now I need to fine tune it. How do I make windows save user names and passwords? I know she will get frazzled when having to keep putting them in. and I have so many to save to! thank you, and one more thing, How do I put links on the top of my browser? I have this stupid small place the says links and they go in there, but I want to add them right to the top where i can see them. thanks you

    Karla - In internet explorer, go to Tools, then Internet options. Click on the tab for "Content" then the Auto Complete button. Make sure the boxes are checked to remember user names and passwords.

    As far as the links, I'm not sure because I don't use Internet Explorer. I use a browser called Avant. Sorry I can't help on that one.

      I recommend downloading the Firefox web browser. It handles website IDs and passwords well and will allow you to save links to the top of the browser.

      http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

      To save the links to the top of the browser, usually you can single-click on the address in the address bar and drag it to the desired location/order.

          And Firefox is a bit more secure than IE when it comes to this type of thing since it isn't so woven into the OS. Good show Karla!

            You can also download a great program called Roboform that will save them and other informatrion (like you name and address) to autocomplete forms.
            Good morning, son
            In twenty years from now
            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
            And I can tell you 'bout today
            And how I picked you up and everything changed
            It was pain
            Sunny days and rain
            I knew you'd feel the same things...

              I use RoboForm!!!! It rocks! I use it as a plug-in with Avant Browser.
