Edge - No option to remember htaccess login details

Since upgrading some PCs to Windows 10 users are complaining about an issue with the new Edge browser.

When connecting to web pages password protected using .htaccess on Apace, the users are no longer presented with the option to "remember my credentials". With some users needing to login to a number of different systems, this feature proved invaluable.

Attempts to raise this with Microsoft have proved fruitless and frustrating. The Offer to save Password option under Privacy and Services is not the solution but all anyone has offered to date.

Simply, is there any way to get the check box back to "remember my credentials"?

I suggest you use IE 11. That is what I am doing while they work out the bugs in Edge.

IE 11 has options to both save and not save passwords and the saved passwords are encrypted

So it appears that this now a deprecated feature? Makes live more unsecure from my experience, people now having post-it notes on their screens with passwords on them!
