Windows credential manager

We can store credentials in Windows Credential Manager instead of hard-coding them into our code. If we want to use a service or a PowerShell script that requires some form of credentials/secrets we can use this feature. Navigate to Windows Credential Manager by:

  1. Start / Type cred / Credential Manager
  2. Windows Credentials / Add a generic credential

For example git stores the HTTP authentication credentials for each domain in here. If the repository's password has been changed, you can reset it here.
