  1. How do I view my passwords in Generic Credentials?


    Going to Credentials Manager, I am able to click "Show Password" and enter my password to view Web Credentials.


    However, under Windows Credentials tab > Generic Credentials there is no option to "Show Password". How can I view my passwords for these Generic Credentials?

    :)

  2. Windows 'generic credentials' unknown listing - what is this?

    Hi Alexa,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC?
    2. Is the PC connected to any Domain Network?
    3. When you click on that unknown listing under Generic Credentials, do you get the remove option?

    Windows Credential Manager basically allows you to store credentials, such as user names and passwords which you use to log on to websites.

    Suggest you to refer to this article to know about
    Generic credentials
    on the Windows PC.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,

    Managing Credentials with no password

    I am referring to the CREDENTIAL MANAGER - which, as I am logged in to my laptop - with NO user name / password (I chose to bypass this at build) - doesn't let me view MY OWN list of passwords !!!

    How do I view MY OWN password list ?

    Also - why was the response above - marked as THE ANSWER ?

    It was NOT the answer and I feel that in assuming that it was the answer is PRESUMPTUOUS !!

    I have removed this assumption....
