If you saved a password for a network drive in windows and want to remove it, press the keys [Windows] + [R] to open the windows command line. Then enter

control keymgr.dll

and click on "OK" to open the windows credential manager which allows you to manage and delete passwords saved in Windows.

control_keymgr

This procedure works for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

    When signing in for my email, I typed in address and password. I pressed yes when a yellow bar across the bottom wanted to remember the password. I had typed the incorrect user name, and I now have three usernames and passwords. Only one is correct. How do I remove the other two?

    Thank you,

      Where did you log into your mail account/what program did you use? For browsers such as Firefox, you can go to the Security Preferences to see and delete saved passwords.

      Sir,
      I have a shared drive on my computer running on W7. I was sharing this drive w/ a few computers running both w/ W7 and XP. I changed my password for the user name I was sharing with. I can change the password on the computers running w/ W7 but can not change it on the computer running with XP. Please help me to change the password for the computers running with XP.

      Regards,

    Deleting a SINGLE username and password
    When you are in the login/password form field where IE8 autosuggests the memorized password,
    Click on the unwanted username then just press DELETE key on your keyboard and IE8 will propose to delete the password and only this one !!!
    This will work in Windows 7 too….
