I am running Windows10.
I have a number of different websites I log on, Gmail, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc.

They have different login names in the username dropdown list when I try to logon to one or the other.

In the past, I have fat-fingered some usernames close to the actual username for that particular website. I want to delete all of the bad login names from that list, but I am unable to find where to do that.

While looking I managed to turn off the dropdown list altogether. :(
If you can help me with this, I would appreciate it.

What I have tried:

I spent 2+ hours in the Microsoft help website.

I googled the question with no answers.

The information is saved in the browser's password manger. Go to Settings and look for the apropriate tag, which will vary depending on which browser you are using.

This is a site for software development problems, not software support.

But ... Almost certainly, the names are preserved by your browser and would have to be deleted on that basis. For Chrome, you can sometimes highlight an item in a drop down and use SHIFT+DEL to delete that item, but it will depend on what the individual site has done to present the info to you and we have no idea how any of them will have done that.

If that doesn't help, you probably need to talk to each site directly.

Good luck.
