    In hindsight I registered with my Facebook account as it was easiest.

    Now I wish I had used the email login option because I want to login during my lunch break at work but I can't as we aren't allowed to access Faceboock on a works PC.

    Can I switch without losing my past posts?

        I dont use facebook or my e mail to log in, infact I dont log out.
        If I should get logged out for some strange reason I just log back in with username and password.:smile:

            Hi @Pushkin i don't know if this will help :scratch:

            How do I link my edX account to Google, Facebook, or Microsoft?
            To log in to edX using your Google, Facebook, or Microsoft account, you need to link that account in your edX account settings.

            Note: Microsoft account linking is only available to certain corporate Microsoft 365 accounts.

            To link your Google, Facebook, or Microsoft account to your edX account
            1. After logging in to edX, select the dropdown menu next to your username, then select Account.
              [​IMG]
            2. Select the Linked Accounts tab near the top to see the buttons to link your social media accounts for one click sign-in.
              [​IMG]
            3. If you are signed in to your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account in the same browser, selecting the Link Your Account button will link this account. If you are not logged in, you will be asked to sign in first.
            Note: After you link your accounts, whenever you sign in your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account, you also automatically sign in to your edX or edX Edge account.

              This seemed to work.
              I had to request a password which was sent to me via email.
              Oddly my email address was already in my account.

                  My PC keeps asking me to set up a microsoft account, why??
                  It seems to be working ok without one.:smile:

                  Google keep wittering on about an account also, I wouldn't mind if it was the kind of account that contained money,:biggrin: but it appears to be just a way of finding out all about you, rather than anything that you might benefit from.

                    pete it must be how your pc is rigged up as i don't get it, just ignore it mate.

                    Google always asks and then when you've got Google it extends to chrome :snorky:...i'm not using edge no more :nonofinger:...i've swapped to chrome better server than edge.:dbgrtmb:
