Microsoft's new Edge browser has a password manager, here's how it works

A new build of Windows 10 made its way to the Internet today. With this new build comes an update to Edge, and while the password manager was in the last leak, we could never get it to work correctly.

In build 10147, the password manager is now working and it is easy to use. The service allows you to add and remove passwords from the sites that you visit frequently, and if you watch the gif above, you will get a better understanding of how the feature works.

Once an item has been added (which can be done manually, or Edge can save the password when you log in to a site for the first time), you can then edit or remove the credential from within the manager.

This simple addition to Edge makes it easier to have more control over your saved content in the browser and remove items that you don't want permanently stored as well. We fully expect Microsoft to sync these passwords over all iterations of Edge as well, which means that on your phone, you should be able to quickly log in to the sites you frequent often on the desktop.

While this feature is not unique to Edge, it is one more addition to the list of items the browser needs to have finished before the OS hits RTM.
