    Hello Roy,

    Does this happen after a clean install without doing any tweaks to the OS?

    Have you noticed any sort of pattern if this tends to happen after any action?

    Do you have all Windows Updates installed?
    Yes, it has when I had everything up to date.

    Any possible patterns?

    It will ask for credentials even if I'm not using store apps...
    Even after fresh OS installs, any MS accounts will end up asking for them. Sometimes I verify the credentials and immediately it will ask for them again

    Sometimes, right when I think I find a pattern, something happens and it makes me question it again

    Did you make any changes to the computer name, or email address or password of the MS account online at Microsoft before this happens?

    Nope, no changes to anything
    I've done a lot of IT work in the past and so I try to figure it out first

    MS doesn't even have an answer when I've asked them Fix Click here to enter your most recent credential in Windows 10

    I thought it might be just a MS Surface problem, but then others were having the problem that had other computers. My wife's HP doesn't have the same problem with her account

    I must admit that it's odd for it to do that even after a clean install. The fun part is trying to find out what could be causing it.

    It was a completely brand new install, not just a recovery

    Does this by chance happen after security updates have been installed in Windows Update?


    You could try this below to see if it may toggle it to stop. I don't have high hopes though since this has happened to you after a clean install, but it's worth a try.

    Switch your MS account to a local account, then switch it back to a MS account.
