Remove credentials from Credentials Manager in Windows 7

Credential Manager allows you to store credentials, such as user names and passwords that you use to log on to websites or other computers on a network. By storing your credentials, Windows can automatically log you on to websites or other computers. Credentials are saved in special folders on your computer called vaults. Windows and programs (such as web browsers) can securely give the credentials in the vaults to other computers and websites. If you want to delete a stored user password from the Credential Manager, follow these steps :

  1. Open Control Panel → User Accounts and Family Safety → User Accounts.
  2. Click on the Manage Credentials link on the left side menu :

  3. You would see a section Windows Credentials. Under it you will find one or more stored credentials. Click on the network or web site name to see the details of any credentials. Under the details, click on Remove from vault to remove it from the Credential Manager.

  4. You would see a confirmation dialog. Click on Yes to proceed the removal of the credential.
