OneNote just keeps asking for a password and refuses to sync my Notebooks. I've reinstalled Office but it is still asking for that password. Clicking the message doesn't do anything. How do I resolve this?


Something is wrong with the saved credentials.

  1. Open Credential Manager in Control Panel.
  2. Delete the credentials containing "live", e.g. "MicrosoftOffie15_Data:live:cid=12345678".
  3. Re-open OneNote and sign in again.
