I have a list of credentials stored in my Windows Credential Manager. But I can't view those passwords. Is there any way to see those credentials?enter image description here

  • Is there a problem or something ? Why don't you just click on the arrow? – Devid Aug 26 '14 at 12:20

You could try Network Password Recovery tool from Nirsoft

    Tried that now. The password is not in plain text. This is what I got for each User - D81z8YUl,YHgArp[t12w9'$\QFgPNk%pJB`c1.feZhpouff9C:'eeGNfdlUXYFv#Fw)g"q$:KrY[gu-f6^?2jG3wUkC5|D+*WZT%dCVvlV(w!7sejK+p$wV]9Hj]bQ=xpWN%GXg3#&BH,Wx.'q7a~iGYe5b)D3MZK5;M_mUR&Rttd#J@!u_@,wD$JtlE1bvD~[;sgMet(N,$tul@$g.or*GqD@\qWbn – Kunal Aug 26 '14 at 11:11
  • It depends. Some application store the password as plain text and some applications hash it. – Tomas Kubes Jul 10 '18 at 10:28
  • FYI: Windows defender flags this with "This program has potentially unwanted behaviour." – Christopher Chase 2 days ago

If you are a developer you could take advantage of this library to find your stored Windows Credentials. https://github.com/spolnik/Simple.CredentialsManager
