      Here are some things you can try if you get stuck in a loop with the aka.ms/remoteconnect login process.

      • Reboot your Switch (hold down the power/sleep button for a few seconds until a menu comes up, then select "Power Options", and then "Restart".
      • Power cycle your internet router (unplug its power cord, wait a minute, then plug it in again).
      • Reboot the device that you are using to access aka.ms/remoteconnect.
      • Clear the browser cache on the device that you are using to access aka.ms/remoteconnect.
      • Clear the DNS cache on the device that you are using to acces access aka.ms/remoteconnect.
      • Use a different device to access aka.ms/remoteconnect.

      Original Description:
      After installing the game for the first time and going through he process of linking the Switch to my Microsoft Account. Minecraft signs in fine and cross play can be done. 

      When I exit the game and start the game up it will not sign into my Microsoft account. 

      I have tried turning the console off which didn't work. I deleted the software and re-installed and it still didn't connect. I then deleted the software and save data, re-installed from fresh, set up the link from Switch to Microsoft account and all works fine until I exit the game and the process repeats again.

      Any help or ideas would be appreciated
