Blair's Burnt Offerings My weblog about .NET and other worldly things

If you have or are part of a project on CodePlex, you know how annoying the TFS login screen is every time you start Visual Studio 2008.

This really got to me.  So much so that I sat down to figure out how to get Windows 7 to remember this.

Open the Control Panel, then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.  Then click on the Credential Manager.

Once there, click on “Add a Windows credential”.  Set the network address to (replace this with your server name), user name to SND\user_cp (note, case may matter), and enter your password you use for the website.  Then click OK.

Now launch Visual Studio.  It should ask no more for the CodePlex login credentials.
