Did you ever get autofill working, kemical? I've got the same problem, almost a year later. I've activated the autofill function, deactivated, reactivated, but no luck. Your posting was not exactly overwhelmed with support or advice. Does anyone else out there have the same problem, or has worked out how to fix it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, because the Edge performance in this respect is way behind its competitors.
By autofill, you probably mean the "Show search suggestions, as I type", or are you referring to "Save form entries"? I don't have, at least on my computers, a specific option for "Autofill"
I do not use the former, as I would not care to have that info stored, but the other function is working OK.
P.S. We are referring to Edge ?
Yes, Dave, should have clarified it as "save form entries", which is switched on in settings. A strange thing is that entries for First Name, Surname, Street, City, etc, don't work at all, but if there's an E-mail entry, it conveniently lists three of my email addresses to select from. But it seems to work in no other case. Referring to Edge.
OK. Well, as I said, I don't use the feature, but, now that this thread has been refreshed, maybe a user can pop in and suggest a fix. Only suggestion I can guess at is:
Are you logged in with a live account and a completed profile? - Possibly the OS uses this info for the form filling. If I browse this problem, I see many examples of how to enable it - of which we are aware!, but no solution if it does not work.
My own experience is only with specific sites, where online purchases can be made. These are controlled by the sites themselves, and (so far) have not given me any problems
Yes, am signed in with complete profile. I've uploaded a picture from a site that has a test form specifically set up to check whether form fill is working, showing how the E-mail field has values which pop up as soon as you click in the field, but nothing appears when any of the other fields are clicked, despite the fact that I've completed the form several times.
All I can tell you is that on my computer, when this forum opens I have to click on Login, when I type the first letter into the window, it offers both my name and my email address (both of which start with m) I finally today clicked the little circle for Remember Me, and now it logs me in without asking, at least for today.
I think I've done this before and it has forgotten, we'll see if it still logs my in tomorrow.
Under Advanced Settings, Privacy and services I have every thing turned "ON".
The only exception is the one about Optimizing for Screen Readers.
I use Firefox as my default browser, (having had problems with Chrome after the AU update) so I don't really use Edge often.
Though I'm finally getting used to it, and finding it a little easier to use then I did to start with.
