Unable to publish GitHub repo.


Recently finished a project and attempted to publish the repo to GitHub via GitHub Desktop. However, when I try to publish the repository it won't let me do this and displays ' ! bad credentials'. I'm not trying to publish it privately so its not that. Very confused. Hope somebody can help.

Kind regards,

Do you have your repo origin set to the repo on GitHub?


I am not sure, but since posting this question the problem seems to have resolved itself. I logged out then back in again and it seems to work now, was probably just some minor, careless mistake on my part. Even so, thanks for taking the time to answer :)
