Changed password via web and now can't login from PC

Recommended Posts

I updated my Evernote account password via web account management and now my notes won't sync from the Windows PC client software.  It's like different Evernote security/authentication servers are in use, and the sync between them is not working, or working abnormally slowly.  Or a flag got set on my account because two different sets of passwords don't match.  I don't know what the real deal is.  The only way I can sign into the Windows PC client software is with my old password.  When I try to use the new password, I am told it's an invalid password.

I have logged out of everything Evernote multiple times on both my phone and the Windows client software. I can get into my web account management portal, I can access my notes in the Windows PC client.  I just cannot make sync work now that my password has changed.  Do I need to revert back to my old password? I would prefer not, but if that's what I have to do to get it to work, please let me know.

I was able to solve this problem by exiting the app from the Windows TaskTray (which I had forgotten about) in the lower right hand part of my screen.  Once I had exited that, I was able to sign in again with the current password.

I wish I had seen this earlier. In my case, I did a complete uninstallation and re-installation. Your solution would have been faster!
