Windows Credential Manager and Two Bitbucket accounts

How do I have Windows Credential Manager store credentials for two accounts of bitbucket in the same Windows account?

The background:

I have a personal Bitbucket account. I store my personal learning projects there. 

I also have a work Bitbucket account.  I used it on my office computer, where I have separate Windows account.

It all worked well until I needed to peek into something in my personal git repository on the office computer. 

My OS is windows 10. I use git version (that is what git --version returns).  I have set both system and global settings so  that it works with the credentails manager just fine. My global and are set to the work account. To clone my personal repo I used the fully qualified URL with the I failed to auth. So I forced setting the password. It somehow changed my password (and username) stored in the Credential Manager. I managed to clone my personal repo. Now that I need to pull from the work repos I am no longer authenticated. So I went to the Credential Manager and manually reset username and password for git: generic credentail. That fixed the immediate problem.

So my question is above.  I want to have repos from my both bitbucket accounts using the same Windows account. Is that possible with the Credential Manager?

Hi  Michael, the 'Git Credentials Manager for Windows' only supports a single account and hence constantly prompts you for your credentials as you attempt to access repositories under different accounts.
