Connected to a NAS, like Synology SMB Service, and clicked ‘remember my credentials’? Sure, that makes it easy whenever you want to go back to that same shared folder, but now what happens if you want to connect using a different user, with different rights to the share?
You would have to remove the exisiting connection first, and make sure Windows 11 forgets how to connect to that Server/NAS/Share. So what do you do?
- In your Windows Start menu, search for “Credential Manager”.
- In the “Windows Credentials” section, remove any stored credentials referencing the share, network drives or similar:
- Open the details with the ‘arrow down’ and click “Remove”.
- Repeat these steps until you remove all of the credentials associated with the NAS.
Now you can reconnect to your share and use the correct login.
Have a nice day!
