Microsoft Edge will save and sync your passwords between machines provided you are signed in with your Microsoft account. While that is a helpful feature (included with most browsers) you might want to manage your passwords manually. Or, maybe you want to start with a new browser or password manager. Whether you are setting up a new password manager or switching browsers, here’s how to export saved passwords from Edge.

- Launch the Edge browser and click Options > Settings.
- Select Profiles from the menu, then press Passwords on the right.

Exporting Microsoft Edge Passwords
To start off, launch the Edge browser, and click the Options menu (three dots) and choose Settings.
Next, choose Profiles from the left pane menu. Under the “Your profile” section click on Passwords.
Now, click the three dots next to “Saved passwords” and choose Export passwords from the menu.
After that click the Export passwords button on the verification message. That will open up File Explorer for you to save the created CSV file that contains your saved passwords. After choosing a secure place to store the file click the Save button.
Note here that anyone with access to your device can view your passwords. So, it is very important to store the file in a secure location.
Now you will be able to view your passwords in Excel or import them to another browser or a password manager that supports importing the CSV files format.
