Windows credential manager contains all passwords that are used on the system on a daily basis. Thanks to it, access to applications or web pages is facilitated because the constant introduction of them is unnecessary at every opportunity. Finding this tool on any computer is extremely simple, but the steps to follow depend on the version of Windows being used:
In Windows 10
1. Go to the desktop and go to the search button located on the Windows bar. Click on it to display the search tool.
2. Once the search bar is displayed, write “Credential Manager” in it and press the “Enter” key so that the system redirects to your location.
3. The control panel folder containing the credential manager will open. In this folder, both the saved credentials of the web (related to browsers) and the Windows credentials (specific to the applications) will be displayed.
In versions prior to Windows 10
Although the location of this tool is maintained in editions prior to Windows 10, the steps to locate it are a little different:
1. Go to the control panel located on the launch bar.
2. At the first opportunity, a restricted view of the control panel is likely to appear. It will be necessary to extend it by modifying the view settings in the button that appears near the upper right corner. The restricted view corresponds to the “category” option, while the extended view corresponds to the “large icons” or “small icons” options.
3. As soon as the view expands, the credential manager appears among the first options. You just need to click on it to get an extended view of it with the same specifications as in Windows 10.
