Github Desktop - New Install - No Repos - Error: Bad Credentials

I just installed Git Desktop. I have at least two issues. They are: (Please provide feedback/assistance)

  1. My repos are not recognized by the Desktop client.
  2. I cannot create the Tutorial Repository due to bad credentials.

Background:

I already have git installed, with ssh auth, and it works great. I can do everything through gitbash command line with no problems. I’m running latest Win10 operating system on Dell Precision M4500.

My github: https://github.com/dlwagner

Git Desktop says I have no repositories, which is not true. When I refresh it still says I have no repositories.

When I select “Create a tutorial repository” I get an error saying “Bad Credentials” :

Here’s the logfile: (C:\Users\don\AppData\Roaming\GitHub Desktop\logs\2019-11-11.desktop.production)

Resolved. I signed out and signed back in and that seemed to have fixed both issues.
