Windows Credentials

I just got this from this article ...

Windows Credentials. Windows 7 will include a system for managing the online IDs, logons, and passwords that you must manage for all of the Web sites you visit. Dubbed Windows Credentials, this feature utilizes a KeyRing for storing online credentials and a Credential Manager user interface. These settings can be backed up to and restored from a secure online vault.

win 7 X64 Ultimate SP1

That's fine, but how does it work. I fill out credentials and call up a web page and it just sets there and looks at me. Who's move is it? Is the vault locked. Is there a service that needs turned on? In IE I checked off on automatic login. I can't find a hint at MS as to the next step. What is everyone else doing? Boo Hoo!
