I’ve been trying to clone to my machine a private repository I have in my Github account using Github Desktop. I can successfully login to my account on Github Desktop and I see a list of my repos. The issue comes when I try to clone one of those repos either choosing one from the list or using “Clone from URL”, that I get an error message “Authentication failed”:
I enter my username and password and get the same result.
I must say I already have a personal token created and I have even tried many things like revoking the Github Desktop access to my account and granting access again or removing credentials from Windows credential manager.
Now I don’t know what else to try or if I’m doing something wrong for thins to happen.
