Windows Authentication

Sometimes when I do maintenance on pcs or servers, I use my credentials to take some files or software from my protected folder on the server, every time when I finish I have to disconnect the user session in windows to end the authenticated connection I made with the server to take files from my protected folder, is there any other way to end the authenticated session "with my protected folder on the server" without being forced to disconnect the windws users session?

Could you remove the credentials from the Credential Manager Vault?

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Credential Manager

IT_Crowd, it is not what I intend to do, I don't want to manager my password on windows, let me try to explain again.
When I am on a pc with limited user account, some times I need to take files from my restricted sharing folder on the server to copy them on the pc, after doing this, I want to make the limited user on the pc to NOT be able to open my protected sharing folder on the server.
Example:
From the pc with limited user access, I do \\192.168.1.1\shared --> my credentials --> copy files from server to pc. I leave the pc, the user go to \\192.168.1.1\shared, there will not be anymore the need to insert username and password to get access the the shared folder since I put them at first time. What I want to do is to make server ask again the credentials by doing some procedure after I finish using the shared folder.

the link you mentioned is good in case you unintentionally checked the box to save your credentials, but in my case I never checked that box.

to approach this from the other angle, you could always go to computer management on the target device (the server) and under Shared Folders > Sessions just right-click and kill the session from that pc using your credentials.

It works only if you don't map the sharing device with username and password saved on your computer.

IT_Crowd, first time when I tried it, I did it on a computer with the mapped shares, and it did not work, but now I tried it on a computer "without" any share mapped, it worked good.
Thanks for you all.
