Issue while connecting from Excel

Hi All,

I hope all are doing well.
I am not able to connect to SF from Excel. Till Friday(17th Jul 2020) i was able to login but all of sudden it stopped.
Steps: 
1. open Excel 2. Click on Data 3. New Query-> Click on salesforce object.
When i enter credentials it is not taking me anywhere. It still ask me to enter the password.
Appreciate any help here.

Thanks.

Nilesh,
You are not alone. Several people have reported this here. The answer relayed from support is that this is a Microsoft problem but i don't have a link to that nor have i found an official response to it. I'll update these posts when i find something to share.

Update: 
There's a post at powerbi.com community that points to this salesforce link. https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000337175&language=en_US&type=1&mode=1

Sounds like an IE11 config problem.

@Paul  McCollum: Thank you very much for the inputs. I guess it is not Microsoft issue because it was working till last week. May be after Summer 20 release somthing has changed.
Appreciate your help here.
