MATLAB Drive Connector says I need to confirm my password periodically. However when I click on the link, it opens a blank window with the title "Sign In" that doesn't actually appear anywhere on my screen. I have tried manually switching to the window via alt-tab, multitasking view, and the taskbar, to no success. I have tried disconnecting from extenral monitors, restarting my computer and even uninstalling and reinstalling the application but I have the same issue. I have read through the other questions about this topic and none of the suggestions have fixed my issue - I have already allowed the drive connector to bypass my firewall.
Because I cannot connect, I can't work with my projects, as changes do not update with my local storage. Please help!
