    Really odd behavior when it comes to accounts

    Ever since I did a fresh install of the Anniversary Update (after WU's attempt to install it ended fantastically awfulbad), I've had issues with keeping accounts logged in, in both browsers and in apps. With Chrome, I am finding that I am constantly being logged out of sites I often visit. With a couple apps that require a login to use (Netflix, etc), I keep getting logged out. I got logged out of Netflix FOUR times yesterday. Four times. What is Windows' damage?

    Windows has no control over chrome's browser.

    Different sites handle logins in different ways, and typically this is handled on the server side. I don't see any way that the OS could be responsible for this.

    It's not just Chrome. It's affecting my apps, too. And yes, Windows DOES have some control over Chrome's logins. You have to enter your Windows password to access saved site passwords.

    I got logged out of the Big Fish Games launcher three times in a single day. WTF?

    Chrome uses your google username and password not Windows. Your bookmarks or favorites are save with your google account. Your WIndows setting are saved with you Windows account. Apps run independent of Windows but run inside windows.

    Are you trying to launch the applications from inside the password storage app?
