Resolving the "Authentication failed" Error with Git for Windows

Today I tried to clone a repo with Git but received the error "fatal: Authentication failed for (URL)". I wasn't sure why I was getting this error when everything was working fine last week. Then I realized that I'd had to change my domain password yesterday, and my stored credentials needed to be updated.

To do so, on Windows 10, right-click on the start button and select Control Panel. Then select Credential Manager. From there, select Windows Credentials and find your Git URL under the Generic Credentials section shown below.

Click on the URL or the arrow to the right of it to view the information associated with it. Click Edit to change your stored password.

I hope this helps!

This project is for end-to-end tests. These two projects will be listed in the angular.json file under the projects node. The code for the project you asked the CLI to create will be located in (app name)\src\app, and the code for the e2e project will be located in (app name)\e2e\src.

But what if you want to add another project?

This is simple. Using the CLI, from within your project's root directory, execute ng generate application (name of your new app).

For example:
ng generate application another-app

This will do the following:

Adds a new folder called projects under your a…
