This tutorial explains how to export Microsoft Edge saved passwords in Windows 10. You can select all or some websites to export list of their passwords that you have saved using Microsoft Edge browser. You can also choose if you want to save list of saved passwords as HTML file, CSV, XML, or TXT file. Apart from saving only the list of passwords of Microsoft Edge browser, you can also save other details, like website URLs, usernames, modified time, creation date, etc.
To export Microsoft Edge saved passwords in Windows 10, you need to use a free software, named as “VaultPasswordView“. This software basically uses the “Policy.vpol” file available in Vault folder, which stores passwords of Microsoft Edge browser on your PC in encrypted form. You can use that file and then this software will decrypt that file to show the list of saved passwords of Microsoft Edge browser on its interface. After that, you can export those passwords along with other details on your PC.
Above you can see HTML file generated by me using this software that contains saved passwords of Microsoft Edge and other details in different fields. In the Item Type field of report, it shows Internet Explorer, but actually the passwords are of Microsoft Edge browser.
Note: Vault folder must contain Policy.vpol file, which stores saved passwords of Microsoft Edge. If this file is not present, then this software won’t be able to show saved passwords. Also, if you use IE on your Windows 10 PC, then this software can show passwords of IE browser also. In that case, you have to exclude passwords of IE browser to save only Microsoft Edge browser passwords.
