Beginner pushing to github in browser from desktop

I used Github Desktop to create a repository and it shows in the browser.

When I’ve moved files into the respository on my desktop and they show in the desktop app. I then commited these files to the Master branch. Now when I try to publish the branch it tells me Authentification failed.

Sorry this is probably something super simple but I’m brand new to this!

Thanks.

Here’s our guide to authenticating to GitHub from GitHub Desktop:

Or alternatively, you can get GitHub Desktop to authenticate by using your login in the browser:
