Fixing and deleting saved passwords in Google Chrome

If you accidentally saved the wrong password for a site, it can be fixed.

Forget which password you saved in Google Chrome for that random Web site? Wouldn't it be nice to take a peek at what it is, in case you need to log in from somewhere you can't sync your Chrome browser? How about when the wrong password gets saved and you're forced to type in the correct one every time you log in? Managing passwords in Chrome can be a speedy process--once you know where the tools are and how to use them.

Step 1: Click on the wrench icon in the top right corner and choose Options.

Step 3: Find the site login in the alphabetical list that needs to be corrected.

Step 4: To fix or view the password, click on the small bullet dots to the right of the site name and then the Show button. This will allow you to see what password was used, and make any necessary corrections for future logins.

(Optional) Step 5: To delete a saved password, mouse-over the line containing the site and password, and then click the X at the far right of that line.

That's it. Now you can fix any password typos and delete others you don't want to hang onto.
