    Hi all i'm running windows 7 home premium with Internet Explorer the newest version, not sure what the number is. I recently deleted all saved passwords but there is one site I would like to keep the saved password but I can't seem to get the browser to ask to save passwords again. Is there anyway I can do this?

    Save yourself and download Firefox.

    Or if you want to keep suffering go under tools>internet options>content>Under the "Autocomplete" section, press settings>check "User names and passwords on forums" as well as "Ask me before saving passwords."

    Internet Explorer has a feature since v8 (v9 is the latest version released, and 10 is in alpha / beta) that allows you to do exactly that. The site that you want to keep the PWs for, just make it a favorite. Then, with IE running, press and hold CTRL + SHIFT + DEL and it will bring up a menu that allows you to delete all the PWs. At the very top of the list is the setting Preserve Favorites website data - check that, and it will save the PWs for all sites that you have made into Favorites.
