Here I am again struggling with wincred. At least according to the article on GitHub.
I’ve already done this in the past I believe:
git config --global credential.helper wincred
But finding out where and what wincred is exactly again is where I started to get lost again.
Windows Credential Manager
With windows 10 you can type “Credential” into the Start Menu or the Control Panel and quickly find the Credential Manager.
Once in there you can jump over to Windows Credentials (oddly not Web Credentials as one would assume) and “Add a generic credential”
Now you should be good to go!
- Caching your GitHub password in git
- Git for Windows getting invalid username or password with wincred
- I also just ran across this guy which might be quite helpful and amazing. Git Credential Manager for Windows
