toad should be keeping a list of previous connections on the left side of the connection window.  click on one of those

if the window is always empty check if you have "Show favorites only" or "Show selected home only"
if you do,  uncheck them.

In Toad ver 9.7.2.5 its "save passwords" at the bottom of the login screen which will help you to save all the login informations. So when you connect the second time you wont have to enter it again.

"save passwords" is just for the passwords.

the username and connect info (tns/direct/ldap)  should be saved regardless of the setting.

Toad will read only the DB name from the tnsnames/ladap/direct. But user/schema will be saved/stored as they entered. If  the "save passwords" option chosen along with the usernames would be helpful for the concecutive logins.
I think I explained it well this time ;)

oh sorry, I guess I was mis-explaining too  :)

I didn't mean the db name would be read from the tns/ldap/direct (although it will)

what i meant was: regardless of which method you use to connect, the connection info for the db as well as the username you used to connect will always be maintained in the left side grid of the connection window.  If you check "save passwords", then the password will also be saved for that user/db combination.  if you don't have "save passwords" checked, then you'll get an empty password but you'll still get the user/db from the left side grid

hopefully I did a better job explaining this time  too :)
