Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'EnableRememberPwd' using the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
Note: To enable this feature, you need to install Office XP SP1 or greater.
