CMDKEY.exe – Windows CMD Command

Create, list or delete stored user names, passwords or credentials.

The credentials created by CMDKEY can also be created and edited in the GUI Control Panel | Credential Manager

Credentials setup as type /generic: TERMSRV will be used by Remote Desktop Connection, so you will be able to connect as the given user without being prompted for a password. If the password is changed you will need to update the stored credential.

By default the credentials are stored in C:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Credentials\
(around 400 bytes per credential)

If more than one smart card is found, cmdkey will prompt the user to specify which one to use.
Once stored, passwords are not displayed by cmdkey.
