When working with Team Explorer in Visual Studio, you might have come across the annoying user login box that pops up each time you open a Team Foundation Server connected solution. The Team Explorer development team decided to use the built-in credential vault in Windows instead of using their own implementation. Here is how you save the credentials inside the Windows 7 credential vault.
- Open the Control Panel
- Click on User Accounts (Called User Accounts and Family Safety in category view)
- Click Manage Your Credentials to the left (Called Manage Windows Credentials in category view)
- Next to the Windows Credentials category you click the Add a Windows credential button.
- Enter server address, username and password.
- Click Ok
Now the Team Explorer client should remember your password.
