Windows 7: How to delete saved Username/Password?

How to delete saved Username/Password?

While trying to access my Mac from Windows 7, I saved the Username/Password login details. However, because the Mac's login is case sensitive, these were incorrect and now Windows 7 tries to use the incorrect saved login each time and fails. I cannot find where to delete the incorrect settings.

Open Command Prompt (Start > Search "cmd" > Enter)
Enter the line: rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr
When the window comes up you should be able to manage stored keys.

You can also get there by just going to the Control Panel "large icons" and clicking on "Credential Manager". But Grey matters method is pretty slick using the command prompt.

Yes the credential manager is probably an easier and more memorable method to use.

I thought it was pretty interesting how using the command prompt produced a different window than C/P credential manager. The Control Panel seems to show more stuff for some reason.

Thanks, that's easier to remember although I have made a note of the command prompt line too.
