Windows 10: Not sure about credentials

    Not sure about credentials

    I went poking around my Win10 system and I came to the credentials. Strange though I have never seen the ones under Windows Credentials > Generic Credentials (see pic)

    Wondering if these are normal or is these something I should remove?

    It is normal. Like you I have generic credials for virtualapp/didlogical (that is Windows Essentials apparently - certainly I got it after installing Photo Gallery). I also have Generic credentials for Skype for Desktop, Office, OneDrive and all sorts of stuff.

    Generic credentials are defined and authenticated by applications that manage authorization and security directly instead of delegating these tasks to the operating system. For example, an application can require users to enter a user name and password provided by the application or to produce a certificate to access a website.
