Add account button is not displayed

Sorry, I am not that good at English.

I'm a Japanese user.

Account authentication failed when pushing once,

Account can not be added because there is no account adding button in the account authentication of the source tree.

How can I add an account?




 If you know anything about that please let me know.

Hi! Sourcetree stores its credentials in Windows Credential Manager, or Vault. You can clear them out so next time you push it'll ask you for credentials again. They are prefixed by 'git:' for git repos and 'hg:' for mercurial repos.

If that doesn't work, you can try wiping Sourcetree preferences?

Also, let us know which Sourcetree and Windows version are you using.

Best regards :)
