Clear your Team Foundation Server credentials

If you have ever logged into TFS using Visual Studio and then checked the checkbox for "Remember my credentials", you may encounter problems with logging into TFS in the future (especially if you change your Active Directory domain password):

Therefore, you may need to clear out your TFS credentials at some point in time!

Fortunately, that is easy enough to accomplish!

You simply have to go into the Control Panel and click on User Accounts-->Manage your credentials

You will then have to click on "Windows Credentials"

There, you should be able to see your stored Windows Credentials:

You can then simply click on the Remove button to clear out your previous credentials.  Then, all you have to do is shut down Visual Studio and re-launch it.  The next time you launch Visual Studio and attempt to connect to TFS, you should be once more prompted for your TFS credentials!

An outdated version of this solution was originally documented several years ago on this MSDN Blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2012/08/29/clearing-the-credentials-for-connecting-to-a-team-foundation-server.aspx
