Avoid Multiple Logins in SharePoint
When using SharePoint, you may be asked to provide your user name and password multiple times.
If you are on the Austin domain (see Is my computer on Austin Active Directory?), use Internet Explorer or Firefox, and run Microsoft Windows. You can configure your browser to use your current Windows user name and password, thereby eliminating the problem of multiple logins.
