    OneNote 2013 no longer remembers password

    Within the past couple weeks each and every time I open OneNote2013 it asks for my password to sync with the files on OneDrive. This is new behavior. It didn't use to do this. I cannot find a setting to tell it to remember the password on the laptop. What the hell? Anybody know why/how to fix this?

    I've had this happen three times in the past few months with the free version of OneNote2016. In each case, I had to go to the account page and switch accounts. I just gave it the credentials of my original account again and it reconnected and stayed that way.

    If that doesn't work, then try removing the credential (control panel / credential manager) and letting it be recreated when you start OneNote.

    When I got to it it had already created a second PC so I set that one up and deleted the old one. Seems to have done the trick. Thanks for the help.

    "Created a second PC"? Not sure what you are referring to.

    When you log in to One Drive online (where the cloud One NOte file is stored), you can log into the PC's that are contributing files. Mike-PC (the original) and Mike-PC(1) both existed. Mike-PC would not work. (1) would, so I deleted the original one. Lost no files but I still have to log in to sync the local One Note.

    All this time it's been asking me for a password on the laptop whenever I open OneNote, and not asking on the phone. Today, the laptop synced itself without asking for the password. Hallelujah!
