  1. Hi,
    So my computer is doing this, but the problem is I have no password so now I appear to be locked out of my computer. While there were options under the PIN field before, there is nothing under the password field that will allow me to switch to entering a PIN instead. Am I locked out forever? Can I force a toggle to PIN without logging in (i.e. so I can log in using the PIN), or do I have to reset the whole machine?

  2. Its the other way around. I want to keep the PIN only as a backup in case I forget my password. But ever since I created a PIN it always prompts for it as the default. MS should have a simple way to control which way to login as the default—but of course they screw it up.

  3. Thank you for the solutions and especially “Workaround” that you mentioned in your article. It worked perfectly for me after a Microsoft refresh. Now, so happy, I may log-in with my PIN number. Again, thank you.
