Import saved passwords from Microsoft Edge to Google Chrome

Is there any way that I can import saved passwords from the Microsoft Edge web browser to the Google Chrome web browser?

This needs to be done within the Windows 10 Pro OS.

Or can I export these passwords from Microsoft Edge into the Google Chrome web browser?

If so how can this be done?

"This article explains how to directly import into Chrome" - it should be noted that this does not work. It works for internet explorer, but not for edge. Chrome does not offer to retrieve passwords from edge.

Edge uses the Credential Manager from Windows, as does IE, so there should be no difference?!
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

Shouldn't, but there is - I tried it.

I'm not on a Windows 10 machine right now, but does Chrome not have import support for Edge?

If it does, these are the steps:

-Open Chrome Settings
-Go to People Section
-Click Import Bookmarks and Settings
-Open drop down and highlight Microsoft Edge
-Check all important boxes
-Press Import

If it doesn't, that's very strange as it's the most common browser new Windows 10 users are using right now until they know better.
McKnifeCommented:
NO support for edge when it comes to passwords. Only favorites.
William MillerIT SpecialistCommented:
That's an absolute shame. It's likely because of the cryptic way these things get stored by Edge.
McKnifeCommented:
Ah...no. Edge uses the same way that IE uses. Actually, passwords set in one are visible in the other. So that leads to thinking, we can simply import from IE - think again. Bug in chrome, if you ask me.
William MillerIT SpecialistCommented:
That's definitely a possibility. Either way, no one is talking. I've done a little digging on the issue and in just the last few minutes I've read at least 15 canned responses. Looks like neither side will cooperate on the issue.

Agreed

There is a way to export the saved passwords to HTML file but you need to manually import the same to Chrome.

Either you need to dig out how Chrome import saved passwords and you just logon with your Gmail account to Chrome browser to save the passwords from one website to another one.
