How to manage saved passwords and form entries in Microsoft Edge browser

When you enter login username and password for any of your website account in Microsoft Edge, it offers you to save your login information. If you save your login information here, Microsoft Edge remembers it, and automatically fills username and password fields next time you open website account login page. Microsoft Edge also remembers form entries (like your Name, email Id, address, etc..) that you enter on different websites, and provides you auto-suggestions when you want to enter that information on any websites that you visit. While this is great feature which reduces user efforts to enter information every time, you can also disable saving passwords and form entries. You can also view your currently saved passwords and update or delete them individually.
