Can't log-in to any websites on Edge browser

  1. When using Edge browser, I can't log-in to ANY website in normal browsing mode.
  2. When I try to log-in to Microsoft Account, I'm told options need to be set to allow cookies. Cookies option in Edge settings is set to "Allow All Cookies."
  3. I've cleared everything in my cache multiple times, too.
  4. When in Private Browsing, all log-ins work correctly.

What am I missing?

Went to those two links and where there was something to try, I did. Still can't log-in to any website using the Edge browser. Private browsing in Edge works fine. Any other ideas?

I have the exact same problem.  I cannot log into ANY website using Edge.  Cookies are enabled.  NOTHING is looking wrong on this end, and I have run multiple virus scans through both Norton and Malwarebytes.  

If this cannot be fixed soon, I will need to completely delete the Microsoft Edge browser from my computer, as it is useless.  Any help that is not in the form of an FAQ??  :(

My Edge browser randomly started allowing me to browse again for a few weeks, but then started crashing as soon as I would open it.  It would not stay open.  I found this procedure on another site and it worked like magic!  Now I'm typing this on my Edge browser and all is good.  I guess there was a corrupt file. 

1. Goto C:\Users\{YOUR UserName}\AppData\Local\Packages
2. Look for the folder named Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
3. Pull up property of the folder and make the content of the folder writable.
4. Delete Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe. You may not be able to delete content of AC sub folder but that's okay.
5. Reboot Windows 10.
6. Run PowerShell as Admin.
7. Type the following command and hit Enter:
 cd C:\Users\{YOUR UserName}
8. Type the following command to re-register:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

9. You should now be able to launch and use the Edge browser

Note:  My deleted folder from step 4 was named ALMOST the same as this, and I kept it in my recycle bin in case this was a mistake and I needed to restore it.  But so far a week as passed and Edge is functioning perfectly.  Whew! :)

I had exactly the same problem..

For me the problem had nothing to do with microsoft Edge settings.

I found out my windows system time settings were one hour ahead! so windows said it was 17:00 while it was just 16:00.. Changing the system time and region settings to the right values solved it for me..

Most logins have a session of half an hour.. when the time is in the future that session will already have expired when you try to login.. so you will log in and directly be logged out.. hence the new login screen..

hope this solves the problem for you too!

I had the same issue when trying to log into my company website. It worked in other browsers but not in IE11 or Edge. Ever since I signed up for Microsoft Insider Preview with the fast updates my system clock has been wrong. I ran services.msc and under Windows Time I started the service and set it to automatically start. Unfortunately It doesn't automatically start but once my system time was corrected I could then log in to any website. It's unfortunate you have to do all that to just log into a website though.
