How do I allow this to be saved?

Windows Security: Your credentials did not work
Windows Defender Credential Guard does not allow using saved credentials. Please enter your credentials.

I went to OptionalFeatures.exe and turned off Windows Defender Application Guard falsely believing that would help :).

I had used this reference (disabling instead of enabling) but it initially did not seem to have had any effect.

After a reboot and observing that the password still couldn't be saved, I also noticed Windows security warning me that my virtualization based security was turned off.

I turned it back on and rebooted and actually I think now it is working as desired (connecting to RDP session using saved credential).

Well unfortunately it was a fluke I guess, because I tried again and it did prompt me again.
