How can I edit the form filled entries in Edge?

I have extra names and some misspelled in form fill, how do I delete or edit. I have tried: Nothing, I don't know how to change things. I think it was caused by: I entered a misspelled email. It seems to be a default behavior that entries cannot be edited.

When I put my details on a form, the next form I go to I need to fill out again as it doesn't save my form entries?

I enter competitions so there is lots of form filling . I've saved form entries in the settings bar but its not working is there anything I can do. I have tried: I've gone to Windows 10 help but that did not helped, its still not saving my forms. I think it was caused by: This has never saved my form entries since I installed Windows 10, I only have this problem on Google Edge
