How to remember your CodePlex credentials

Codeplex logoA very small tip today for CodePlex users. If you are developer for a project on CodePlex, I’m pretty sure you had the same problem, how to avoid to type the login and password of the TFS server used by CodePlex? If you could use your own login it would be better, but unfortunately, it is generated by CodePlex, and you can’t change it. BTW, this tip works with any other Team Foundation Server you want to connect with Visual Studio.

(With Windows 7) So go to the Control Panel | User Accounts and Family Safety | Credential Manager. Click “Add a Windows Credential” and enter your credentials, using tfs.codeplex.com for the internet or network address.

You’re good. Now, Visual Studio will remember your credentials.
