stay signed in

I would like to know if there is a way to stay signed in on certain websites that I frequently visit instead of every time I close the IE 11 browser I am forced to enter the log in info all over again.

Thank you

It depends on the developer of the web sites. They can make them in a way that browser saved credentials will not work.

You might try to seaarch for some firefox extensions tht will solve the problem for that specific web pages.
Each page may require own workarounds depending on how they are implemented.

if you specify which pages, you may get better hints, maybe some of us already solved it for that particular page.

For IE its more difficult, as there are far less extensions as for firefox, which has most.

But it really depends on WHAT page you want to achive it, it depends on how site admins prevent password saving.

I use LastPass. If the site signs off. LastPass is ready to sign in with minimal fuss. They have a free version you can try.

You might try this trick it works with some pages that uses autocomplete=off to prevent password saves.

Or in firefox with an extension.

Nope, it depends lagely on the page you are trying. if for examply they use silverlight or flash you are lost, for those i dont know any workaround.

Maybe try lastpass as suggested or try the firefox extension together with firefox. If you cannot or wont like to install firefox, there are also portable versions available, they can run unzipped from a folder without installation.

FWIW, LastPass is able to fill in forms: https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/fill-form-basics/

Basem copy and paste your details to a notepad, then just copy paste from it in the future.
Some sites especially with security protocols like banks or Pay Pal or places where your confidentiality is paramount have these forms for this reason.
If it is simply a log in you can go the web page in IE and then set it to remember this.
Open Internet Explorer.
Click the Tools button, and then click Internet options.
On the Content tab, under AutoComplete,
