Auto fill setting Google Chrome does not hold

I changed the setting on a friend's system to enable auto fill in the Google Chrome settings. We checked it on a few web pages and it was fine. Now he says there is no auto fill. I've seen the instructions on how to set it with an article found using Chrome search.

Why does the setting not hold?

Does he sign on with his Google account in Chrome browser?
No and I never have either and my auto fill works fine.

Setup a Windows logon password and try again.
He does not even use the start menu to get to programs. He does it all by clicking on the desktop. He won't likely go with a password.

Click on Chrome's main menu button, located in the upper right-hand corner of your browser window and represented by three horizontal lines. When the drop-down menu appears, select Settings. You can also enter the following command shortcut in Chrome's address bar (also known as the Omnibox) in lieu of clicking on this menu item: chrome://settings.

The Chrome Settings interface should now be displayed in a new tab. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on Show advanced settings... Scroll down a bit further until you locate the Passwords and forms section, shown in the example above.

To disable Autofill, remove the checkmark next to the option labeled Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click by clicking on it once. To re-enable the feature at any time, simply place the check mark back in the box.

Try to disable and preferable auto fill feature according to the instruction above if you only mean autofill for input fields like user names.
I sent that to the pc owner and they will try it or ask me to try it for them. When is unknown.
