Microsoft Office is a set of applications developed by Microsoft for office as well as home use. The first version of the application has Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The applications have grown longer over the years with its new and advanced features like common spell checker, OLE data integration, and visual basics. The software is widely used for office and business use.
The most widely used version is the desktop version available for systems which have windows and macOS operating system.
Some users face issues like the application asks for authentication requests when you open office documents.
Main reason why the error occurs is that when you click on your office document the web client sends a request header to the server to check the WebDAV communication. The server then returns a response header to the web client which results in authentication requests. The office application tries to open the document directly from the server.
In such cases, our Microsoft Office support team provides you clear guidance on how to overcome the error of authentication requests. Our office support team can assist you either via Microsoft Support Number phone call or chat.
Enable Internet Explorer to allow automatic login
If you want to allow automatic login in internet explorer, the option must be enabled for the zone in where the site is located. For a local Intranet zone, you have the default configuration for automatic logon with current username and password.
Enabling the automatic login can overcome the error of authentication requests when you open your documents.
Allowing the Options call
The Microsoft office often sends an option call to determine the server type and the type of web authoring protocol. If the web server uses the web application to access the files, you can change your applications to handle the options request.
Configuring your server to use integrated windows authentication
You can also try configuring your server to use integrated windows authentication.
If your files are located in the file system of the web server, you can avoid the unwanted requests by allowing the options call to succeed.
Downloading the files directly onto your system
If you download the files directly onto your system, the error of login prompt can be reduced to a greater extent.
The request for credentials can be avoided by choosing the Remember password option and the method should be followed only when your computer is in a trusted environment.
Form based authentication
Try leaving the application open
You can also try leaving your application open to maintain the direct editing functionality.
