WildBlue login saved my misspelled user name. How can I get it to remember the correct one? I have to enter it anew every time I log on and it won't remember it.

Try clearing your browser history, assuming you are logging in through your browser.

Depending on the browser, you have to check the option to delete saved passwords. A normal clean wont do it.

Which browser are you using?

Try Firefox or Chrome or the Viasat browser. About anything is better to use than Edge.

There are two ways form data is saved - either by the web site itself or by the browser's save form data features.

In the case of the web site, it's generally accomplished with a checkbox on the form itself indicating to remember information which saves the information in a "cookie" for later use - the site then populates the form with that saved cookie. For example:


How that functions is entirely up to the web site, but clearing its cookies will cause it to forget.

The second approach is used by the browser itself which will offer to remember form data on your behalf and then proceeds to auto-fill the form the next time you visit. The browser provides ways to manage these and they aren't affected by clearing cookies.

Sometimes these two approaches can yield a conflict if different information is saved by each. It's best to use only one or the other method and not both to avoid these conflicts (since they can be browser dependent).

The Microsoft Edge browser provides a fairly robust feature to manage form entries and auto-fill settings on a site by site basis.

Too lengthy for discussion here but the following link may help:

In our rush to invent easy buttons, it seems we've made things more difficult requiring a novella to explain.
