    Outlook Sign in - make it go away!


    Suddenly in the last week or so I was given the gift of the new Outlook. I don't really like it but I can learn to live with all the wasted screen space - I'm sure Microsoft developers know what's best for me!!. However, now almost every time I try to check my emails I get the Sign in screen - see attached screen clip. Can someone tell me how to make this go away, I never had this annoying display until very recently!

    Have this too, just recently started. Very annoying. I had recently reverted back to 8.1 as Win 10 just kept screwing up my pc. So it`s not just happening on 10.

    Outlook.com? I ask because that doesn't look anything like my version of Outlook 2016, from Office 2016.

    Ok, I had a feeling it was something like that. It logs me in automatically with my Microsoft Live ID. Even though I never use Outlook.com. I don't remember ever setting it up either? I must have years ago when I first became an MVP? I use the full Outlook client that comes with Office. I have no idea what's causing your popup?

    If you don't use outlook live for e-mail you may have to go to Settings > System > Default Apps > Email and change it. I have mine set to Outlook 2016. The default was I think Mail. Which likely takes you to Outlook.live.com.

    If I understand correctly, the Outlook online version?
    Stop cleaning cookies, or at least save them, when cleaning if using Ccleaner.

    It is not the cookies that are causing the problem - I think. I can bring up outlook.com multiple times and it requests a sign in almost every time. I did not delete any cookies or run CCleaner between Sing in's.

    I thought it was that, because I had a similar problem with a site once, and saving cookies fixed it.
    does it have the "Remember me" check box?
