I have been facing this issue since long, Its with the Remote desktop client I use to connect to terminal server. Despite of me putting the check to remember password, it still repeatedly prompts for the credentials. This time I decided to fix the issue, hope this helps you as well

The solution is really simple. Follow the steps below-
