Create a Shortcut to the Stored User Names and Passwords Dialog in Windows

We can create a shortcut to the Stored User Names and Password, which we store in many of the websites which require logging on. We can save passwords for a remote desktop session, an email or social network account or a mapped drive. If you use a shared computer, you wouldn’t do that or if you have started saving passwords now you may not know where they are stored. To open or manage passwords we type control userpasswords2 into the Start menu search box and hit enter. On the resulting User Accounts screen, click on the advanced tab and then click the Manage Passwords button.

Now we might be interested in how to create a shortcut directly to the dialog where we can manage those logons. And we may not be using it everyday but we can save it in our useful shortcuts list.

So, when we try to create the shortcut, we just right click anywhere, like desktop and select New and then Shortcut from the menu. Then it asks the location of the item, in that bar add rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

Now we’ll give a name to the shortcut and the shortcut is created, so we also want to change the icon of it. We will right click that shortcut and press Chang Icon tab. It will ask the location of the icon then just paste the C:WindowsSystem32keymgr.dll in that tab so we’ll get the appropriate icon for our shortcut (If you’ve installed Windows in C:).

Now when we’ll open the Shortcut, the Stored User Names and Passwords dialog box will appear. We can also use this shortcut to backup and restore our saved passwords, and it should work in Windows 7, Vista or XP.
