I am having the same problem.  Just started today.  Hadnt had any problem in the past.  And when I try to log in with my credentials; it says Im already logged on on this pc.  I can get the files to open into word desktop app.


since this week I also have the issue that I can't open anymore Office files (Excel, Word) in the Desktop-App

System keeps asking me to log in but that has no succes other than a "no access" of "can't find the file"
