Auto entering credentials in Git

Any time you do a Fetch or a Push to a secure Git repository, you will be asked for your username and password.  To have these credentials auto-entered, do the following:

  1. Download got-credential-winstore.
  2. Put it in a folder where you will keep it permanently.
  3. Run it with the -i option to specify the Git location (not 100% sure this step is necessary.
  4. To use this in TortoiseGit, go to Settings/Credentials. 
  5. Select 'wincred - this repository only'
