Retreive Windows Stored Passwords

One thing that everyone must have experienced is to remove the stored user credentials on a Windows PC, when you start to think it can become a security vulnerability. I did little googling on this, after failing to find out where those passwords were stored. I wanted to remove my remote server's stored credentials. The search result showed a cute windows command to be entered to get there. Cute! I love windows command shortcuts!

Here's what it is:

Type the following command in the Run window (Windows + R):

rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

This will take you to the Password management store.

Thats it! You can do whatever you want from here. Needs no further explaination
