    What kind of account did you try to sign in?

    Did this problem only appear in Excel? How about other Office products?

    It is recommended that you check whether you have a firewall or anti-virus software enabled. Try to log in after disabling.

    Hello, for anyone having this issue I found a solution and have managed to now log into my school account in Excel -> My fix was to place two services on Automatic and then restarted them. They were the "Microsoft Account Sign-In Assistant" and "Web Account Manager". This fix was found by apeman1 in one of the other discussion regarding the same issue.
