Outlook.com Login Screen

Any idea why both on laptop and desktop (Win10 Creators) when I open Outlook.com for the first time in that session (in Edge) I am presented with the login screen. I click the “Sign in” button and Outlook.com starts — no login data is requested. This began happening shortly after the Anniversary update. Not Earth shattering, just annoying.

    <p>Are you saying that you can log in without supplying your password? That sounds scary. Maybe Edge is entering it for you? Or are you using something like LastPass?</p><p><br></p><p>Anyway, I tried it myself and apparently Edge has stored my password and enters it for me, but I still have to click the "Sign in" button.</p>

    <p>Agreed, it's annoying that we get the login page, we used to just route right to the inbox.</p>

    <p>Happened to me too, but not anymore. I use 2FA and accidentally ticked "don't ask me again for this device" or something when logging in and it never asked me again, lol.</p>
