TechNet Social login problems on Windows 8.1 w/ IE 11

    Question

  • I'm unable to login to the Technet forums on any of my Windows 8.1 computers with IE 11. This seems to be an issue with the Windows 8.1 Microsoft Account SSO. I haven't tested further, but I have this problem on all of my computers, but I can use Chrome/Firefox without any issues. Is there a solution to this? If not, is anyone working on a solution? Is there awareness around this issue?

    Thank you.

  • The problem ended up being that someone on our internal help desk team had added https://*.microsoft.com, https://*.live.com, https://*.outlook.com, etc. to the Trusted Sites domain. I have no idea how or why this was done, but the foundation of this problem is apparently that Protected Mode needs to be on for SSO to work with the TechNet Social forums Microsoft Account login. Thanks for the comments everyone.
