Password prompts in SourceTree

I'm using SourceTree on a Windows 7 laptop. Whenever I do a push/pull in a terminal window, it requires me to enter my password.  This is a real inconvenience.

I've saved my password under Tools | Options | Authentication per the screenshot below and that doesn't work.

What can I do to prevent the constant password prompting?

Whatever you do in a terminal window will not be affected by what SourceTree remembers.

Install git-credential-winstore to solve your problem.

Thanks for the reply...will do.
