I have shared a folder in a remote PC....when I access the folder through run (\192.168.4.*) it doesn't ask for credentials the 2nd time (Without mapping the folder). How can I have the credential window popping up when ever I want?

Much more info is required : What are the two involved operating systems, share permissions and owner, method of accessing the shares. – harrymc Feb 24 '11 at 11:52

You can manage saved credentials in the Control Panel at User Accounts -> Manage your passwords.

At least on Vista, you can access the dialog with:

rundll32 keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

Alternatively, you can log off using:

net use \\<path to network share> /DELETE
