How to change stored Network Printer Credentials

Ok, i have several printers that are all controlled by a print server in a domain.  When i initially set up each workstation to use their respective printers, it seems on two or three workstations, when i installed the printer and it asked for credentials, i used DOMAIN\administrator instead of that users domain log in, and clicked remember.  How do i change that now??

Please help. Thanks in advance!

Try running on the problematic PC (XP), from the start/run box:
rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr
This should open the password management console. If your saved share is present, you should be able to delete it.

Probably easiest to delete the printer on the workstation and recreate it.

I tried that.  It is remembering the credentials.  Even tried deleting, restarting and then readding, but it rememebers the last credentials.

Whats interesting is, even though i went in there and deleted the credentials for that server completely, and then deleted he printer, when i reinstalled, it still used the same credentials. it never asked me for new ones.  I may wind up deleteing all credential in that list

The odd part is why did it ask for credentials in the first place. In a domain you generally grant domain users permissions for a printer then any user connecting to the printer is automatically granted access.

Well, that's because our servers are in a domain but our workstations are logging in locally.  It's a long story, but we had to do it that way for the time being.  So we have to store credentials for access to anything on the domain.  Interesting note: I had two computers with the wrong into saved.  I tried one just like you said, deleted the credential, delted the printer and when i added it again, it asked for knew credentials.  Worked like a charm.  The other one however, i deleted all the credentials stored, deleted the printer and it still somehow didn't ask for credentials.  I wonder if for some reason i have to restart that one first.  Don't know why though, the other one worked fine.  Identical PC's.

I can't imagine why, but I will believe you :-)

You can actually run into issues if you try to connect to the same server with two different credentials such as the user's for file shares and admin for printers.
