Access Stored User Names and Passwords Dialog

July 31st, 2008 by Dev Team in News, Password Info, windows

If you’ve ever saved a password when connecting to a website that requires authentication, for a remote desktop session or a mapped drive, you might have wondered where those passwords are saved. You can view these by going to the Start button then the Run dialog box and paste this:

rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr


control keymgr.dll

alternatively you can create a shortcut on your Desktop Right-click on the desktop and choose New \ Shortcut from the menu.In the location box, enter in the following command, and then on the next page give the shortcut a helpful name. rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr Once you have the shortcut, you’ll want to right-click on it and choose Properties, then click the Change Icon button on the Shortcut tab. If you change the textbox value to the following file, you can find the matching icon for the shortcut (adjusting if your Windows is installed elsewhere)C:\Windows\System32\keymgr.dll Now you should have a nice matching icon, which will open up the Stored User Names and Passwords dialog. Note that you can also use this to backup and restore your saved passwords, and it should work in either Vista or XP.
