Go to Tools > Options > Authentication > Saved Passwords

Either edit your existing username to enter a new password

or Delete your existing username and add a new username password combination.

don't see an option to add a new username and pasword, just to Edit and Delete.

During install my Git authentication failed because I mistyped the Git username and there was no way to change that, so I just quit installation and now the software is broken.
