    Sorry about that, I should have checked more carefully.
    Hopefully this is more applicable, note that the method for win 7 and win 8.1 are quite different

    That's to setup Windows Vault to store the credentials so we could retrieve it late on.

    I want to retrieve the stored (saved) password.

    So this bit is NOT what you want?

    Step 1: Download NirSoft’s IE PassView from here, a free software to view and backup passwords saved in Internet Explorer browser.Step 2: Extract the downloaded zip file to get IE PassView executable and then double-click on the same to run it.Step 3: Upon running IE PassView, it will scan the browser for saved passwords and displays URLs, usernames and their passwords.

    From the link I posted earlier.

    That hasn't worked in W7 for a while now. BUT there is a way I've used in the past, its a bit "mickey mouse" but sometimes gets the job done.

    1st install Firefox -- When it offers to import favorites and passwords logins allow it making sure passwords are selected.

    If FF is already installed, go to Bookmarks (along the top -assuming the menu options are there) -- Show all bookmarks -- import and backup - import data from another Browser --Select IE,make sure all are ticked.

    Once imported - go to Tools - Options -- Privacy and Security - Save Logins:
    Click image for larger version.

    Bottom Right - click show passwords - Click yes -- All the imported user names and passwords in full view
