Hi everybody, Sorry if this question has been asked already but I'm having know luck finding a solution. I'm trying to to open Microsoft Edge on a laptop at work but I keep getting a dialogue box that says "Your admin needs to sign in. To use Profile 1 please sign in or switch to a different account" (screenshot) I don't want to use my personal Microsoft credentials because the laptop and browser will be used by around 20 other guys in our workshop. Is it possible to open Edge without an initial login?

Thanks James243630-edge.jpg

    Hi @James Murnane ,

    It looks like your organization has enabled a policy called Browser sign-in settings and set it to Force, which means you will have to sign in to a profile to use the browser. Please contact your organization's IT to know more and find a solution to this (such as sign in with a work account).
