Posted September 5, 2006 by Rob Rogers in Windows networking

The Stored User Names and Passwords applet lets you assign user names and passwords to authenticate yourself to services in domains other than the one you are currently logged into. This tutorial explains adding the applet to your XP Control Panel.


Open up Notepad, and copy the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}]
@=”User Accounts 2″
“InfoTip”=”Starts The Windows 2000 style User Accounts dialog”
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\DefaultIcon]
@=”%SystemRoot%\\\\System32\\\\nusrmgr.cpl,1″
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell\Open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell\Open\command]
@=”Control Userpasswords2″
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}]
@=”Add Userpasswords2 to Control Panel”

Save the text file, and rename it to “XP_ControlPanel_UserPasswords2.reg,” for example. Then merge it into the registry by double-clicking it. Reboot.
