Cannot view saved passwords in updated ie11

When trying to view saved password either via control panel or internet explorer options: the "show" passwords is not visible. I can only choose to remove password or edit password. Is it no longer possible to view stored passwords in ie11?

At least it was possible to do this in win8.

Control Panel-User Accounts-Credential Manager

Expand the desired password and I have the options "edit" or "remove from vault", maybe this is through an HP third-party utility but I doubt it. My problem is that I dont have the "show" option when I expand the saved password.

Sorry, I was not thinking of Windows 8. I believe that the "Show" option is only available in Windows 8, not Windows 7.

If AutoComplete is signing you in to a particular site you can view the password with the "Reveal" (magnifying glass) symbol in the password field.

If the reveal icon doesn't work for you, you can import passwords into Chrome and view them in Manage Passwords.

If you don't have Chrome installed, install it.

In Chrome click the 3 dots in the upper right> Bookmarks> Import bookmarks and settings>  etc.

After importing passwords, favorites, etc. into Chrome go back to 3 dots in the upper right> Settings> (at the bottom) Show advanced settings> Passwords and forms> Manage passwords.

Click the 3 dots beside each line of login data> Details> click the Eye to see the password. Slow, perhaps, but there aren't alternatives.
