Windows 7: Always have to retype saved password to connect to the server with RDP

Always have to retype saved password to connect to the server with RDP

So I have a desktop with Windows 7 and a server with win server 2008r2.



I have remote desktop setup with the username and password to connect to the server. Everytime it says something like authentication failed or something similar with the saved password, but if I type in the same password again, it works and connects.



I tried turning windows firewall off, changing the password, deleting the saved RDP icon and making a new one with the saved password, and a few other things. Any idea on how to fix this?

#1 delete the saved password
#2 run remote desktop again and input the password, then let it save it
#3 if #2 did not save it, save it manually again

It could be a security option you dontrealy want to auto connect to a server as its a risk same happens on some banking sites it wont save passwords

Tried that already, didn't work unfortunately.

Perhaps a browser-independent password manager could help.
