Since updating to Version: 2.90.782.0 64-bit (February 2021) I now need to log in each time I open a new .pbix file. I did not have this problem on the previous version. Very frustrating as I use Power BI Desktop every day with multiple .pbix files.

Hi @cpunnett,

 

Actually, you only need to type your account and password at the first time you log in Power BI desktop. When you launch desktop later, desktop will store the account you logged in last time by default.

I have to log in every time I open a new desktop, even when I have one open and logged in already.

Hi @cpunnett,

 

I noticed that this issue existed in Jan 2017 release. What is your desktop version? Please update your desktop to the latest release for a test.

It is up to date.  Not sure why it does this, but it's really annoying.

Hi @cpunnett,

 

I didn't encounter this problem in my desktop version (August 2017 release). Would you please try to enable the save credential option when you typed in your name and password?

I would love to turn that option on, but can't find it.  Where is it?

even if I am logged in on one instance, opening a second report required another login .
