    Problem adding work account to my user account

    It worked a couple days ago, but I had to do a restore. Now, when I try to modify my account settings (Settings>Accounts>Your Account>Add work or school account) it connects to my work to complete the sign in, but instead of getting a confirmation, I get a screen with nothing more than "#" as my message. I am attaching a picture. Of course, on my account page, it doesn't show as a connection.

    I can successfully navigate to my company's sharepoint and do work, etc. So I suspect a problem/issue on my PC. I just upgraded to Windows 10 about 6 days ago.

    Today, I observed that if I attempt to navigate to the company sharepoint through Edge, I get this same "#" message when I attempt to sign in. If I use Internet Explorer, it works fine.

    I've given up on "adding" the work account. Our company uses Okta, and perhaps it's a lack of support for Edge (hypothesis) causing the problem. The fact I can use IE and have no issues is enough for me.
