Microsoft Edge not logging into websites

I installed Windows 10 on a HP Pavilion Notebook. After using the Edge browser for a few days I now find that it won't recognize a login to a website. When I enter the username and password the log in won't go through. I don't get an error message that the login failed, it just goes back to the page as if the login didn't happen.

I'm sure I'm using the correct login and I'm able to log in easily using Chrome on the same machines.

Is this a glitch in Edge or is there something I can do to correct it?

Hi Allen,

Let us clear all browsing data to check if it will help us resolve your concern. Here are the steps:

  4. Make sure to mark all the checkboxes under Clear browsing data and then click the Clear button.

You may also try to access the website in private mode by pressing (Ctrl + Shift + P).

Let us know how it goes.
