I'm using Visual Studio 2010 with source control (TFS). Each time I open new instance of Visual Studio and connect to Team Explorer, it asks me for my credentials. I'm already logged in to Windows with the same domain user.

Is there a way to make Visual Studio remember my credentials, so I don't have to type them every time?

Team Explorer under VS2010 authenticates to Team Foundation Server using the Windows authentication.

So you ca try to add your credentials under Credential Manager (Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager).
