I am using IE8 to open a sharepoint portal on local network. Initially, I clicked on remember password after passing domain credentials. However, now I want sharepoint to ask credentials again.

I've tried many options - Deleted all cookies, IE > Security Tab > Form Autocomplete > Deleted everything. Restarted my machine. And all I could do. Still, when I open portal, sharepoint logs me in automatically. What should I do to make IE ask for credentials again?

Check which zone your sharepoint site resides in. If its Local Intranet zone, it might be passing credentials automatically. Move the site to Internet or Trusted zone.

In Windows 7/Vista:

Start -> Control Panel -> Credential Manager

But you can access this window also as enableDeepa wrote:

Start –> Run –> control userpasswords2

Select second tab Advanced -> Manage passwords

Not sure if it matters, but as a domain user you're also automatically logged in to sharepoint sites as well, so my trick was to hold shift, right click on IE, run-as different user, and run as the user i wanted to log into sharepoint as.
