Solved: Entering Credentials in SharePoint

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

Microsoft 365 SharePoint is a wonderful tool used by many people and organizations through out the world to collaborate while using other Microsoft products. The only downside that I've encountered while using SharePoint was having to enter my login credentials numerous times. For example, I would have to enter my credentials to login and then enter them again to download a document. Not only was this consuming more of my time it was also highly annoying, and thus began my search to remedy the issue and offer a solution to others.
