    Does the screen asking for the code not tell you where to obtain the code? Do you have 2-factor authentication enabled where you need to obtain a code from your authentication app on your phone?

    Thanks for the reply,the screen justs asks me to insert the code,I don`t have a phone with that app on.

    I am unable to post a screen shot because my screen shots have been placed in this personal vault so

    I can`t retrieve them until I can open it.

    Hello Terry,

    You get the code from the verification method you selected like in step 7 below. The available verification methods will depend on what you added to your Microsoft account security settings.
