  1. On the keyboard, press the Windows (Flag) button and ‘R’
  2. Enter in control keymgr.dll
  3. Press ‘OK’
  4. Locate the name of the website, server or service which applies (e.g. myserver) and click on the down arrow to expand the options
  5. Click on the ‘Remove from vault’ to remove the saved password.
