Do you recognize this?
You connected a document library to Office, because you want to be able to save Office documents directly to SharePoint, without looking for the right URL. With this ribbon button, you can create a SharePoint location in Word/Excel/etc that you can use as save location. Very usefull.
After some time however, I was going nuts because everytime I had Office documents opened on my machine, about every 15 minutes, I was asked credentials for a customer site I had connected to about a year ago. I didn’t have access to that site anymore, so removing the location thru the ribbon wasn’t possible.
Very annoying when you are in the middle of a training or demosession and every 15 minutes your screen is switched to the login screen. Arghhh!!
Btw: I also had another location Office kept bugging me for. I removed the location in SharePoint but this didn’t help either…
After some #sphelp tweets and a lot of Googling the internet I finally found the solution. Yeah! 🙂
The solution can be found in the registry, at the following key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Portal\Link Providers\*Name of link*]
Once you remove the sites for which you are asked credentials, the problem is gone. Puff!!
