    Help- I'm an idiot! I connected to network and now cannot disconnect!

    I am currently setting up new staff standalone laptops and have created a shortcut on their desktop that connects to their network share. I put in my log in credentials and then clicked remember these settings.

    Now every time I log on it remembers my log in BUT I want to disconnect that but don't now know how.

    HELP!

    Create a shortcut with this:

    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe keymgr.dll,KRShowKeyMgr

    Shows all stored credentials and you can delete as necessary.

    If you're using a later version of Windows try going to Control Panel\Credential Manager - you may find it's stored in there. If it is, just delete it.

    Yep, on Windows 7 it's under User Accounts, then Manage your credentials.
