Why do I have to sign in to my comcast email if I have desktop icon.

Why do I have to sign in to my comcast email if I have desktop icon.

I used to be able to click on my desktop icon for my email, but I am no longer able to do so.  Can anybody give me some info on why and if there is a way I can avoid the sign in.

thanks

Did you have the box checked on the sign-in page to keep you signed in?  Also, if you have cleared your browsing history, that would delete the cookie from Comcast that makes the sign-in memory work.

Yes, I performed the tasks that you recommended.

If you just go to the webmail using your browser, does it keep you signed in?  If so, delete and recreate the desktop shortcut and see if it works.

I have tried everything.  I even changed my browser to access my comcast email, and I still get the request to enter my log-in.  If it does comes up by chance, I try to create a short cut, but that does not work either.  I am frustrated.  I do not know what else to try.

I finally got a response from Comcast about this issue.  I was told to go to settings and under clear  browsing data, I was instructed to untick cookies and web site data.  It worked, but I am not sure if I should have completed that task.   Thank you for your assistance.  I do appreciate it.
