    Hello.
    I have an application that requires user and password to enter. It's a web
    based app.

    What i'm looking for is a way to add the user Id to the shortcut, so that i
    only need to enter the password.
    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    Luis

    You need to set these settings in web browser. In IE8 you have to do the
    following:

    1) Tools, Internet Options,
    2) Now Click on Content tab
    3) Click on Settings Button
    4) Put check marks against: Forms, Usernames & Passwords, Ask me before
    saving passwords.

    If you do this, you will have access to your programs without entering
    anything. However, this also means that anyone using that machine when the
    original user hasn't logged off, can also access the programs. You need to
    decide whether passwords need to be saved fpr security reasons only.

    If you are using previous versions of IE then the procedure is still the
    same except the items may not be in the same tabs. But you get the idea.
