    OK to disable Credentials Manager


    I have 4 machines on my home hardwired network, 3 W10 and one W7. Do I need the Credential Manger and Network Credentials? Can I remove or disabled them?

    Thank you.

    Check - User Accounts - Credential Manager - if you do not have anything there, you most likely do not need it.
