can we first know how you access your Hotmail account? Using a web browser or an email client?

Can you check if 'Keep me signed in' is (still) enabled for your account? Check 'Sign in' on page here: https://outlook.live.com/owa/

Gerwin - right clik on my avatar (top right) does not give me sign out, only a menu list to handle the avatar pictur (save, copy etc)

Ok, can you share your setup, browser used, URL used to login etc?

i use edge   with this url   https://outlook.live.com/owa/

I meant to say left click (oops) the avatar in the Outlook Window, to the right of where it says "Nu vergaderen".


I checked in Edge on a W11 machine, it does allow me to sign out then sign in again and select Yes at the "Stay signed in?" prompt.
