Microsoft Edge stores all passwords in Windows Vault (also known as Credential Manger). In Windows 10, you can easily find Windows Vault files by accessing the following locations:

  • C:\Users\user_profile_name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Vault
  • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Vault
  • C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Vault

All web credentials are stored in an encrypted form and Microsoft Edge doesn’t provide an option to view the saved passwords. In this tutorial we’ll show you a simple way to view & export Microsoft Edge saved passwords using a reliable tool – Password Recovery Bundle.
