    Can't reset my PIN


    So I turned on my laptop, and it asked me to type my pin to log in. But I've almost never used my pin before, (I always logged in with my password), so I clicked on 'I forgot my PIN'. After I did the steps, this is what it said. Can't reset my PIN c88ea154-97c1-4e2e-9e20-73b5fc7a2969?upload=true.png

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.

    Hi Pat,

    It is possible that the PIN set in an earlier build does not work after reinstalling Windows 10. To better assist you, we'd like clarify few things:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using before reinstalling Windows?
    • Have you tried resetting your PIN?
    • Did you get any error messages after you verified the PIN you entered?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow the steps in this
    on how you can reset your PIN.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.
