    forgotten pin

    Hi,

    I'm going around in circles here.

    I want to download Windows Draw.

    I'm asked for my PIN - I have absolutely no memory of ever setting a PIN.

    I click on "I have forgotten my PIN"

    I'm asked to sign In, but I am already signed in.

    My contact phone number has changed so that won't work.

    I go to the site suggested;

    I'm asked for my PIN - I have absolutely no memory of ever setting a PIN.

    I click on "I have forgotten my PIN"

    I'm asked for details of my age etc.

    An automated response come back saying I haven't provided the right data!

    I still want to download Windows Draw.

    Argghhhhh

    Hi LindsayHolland

    Greetings! I am Vijay, an Independent Advisor. I am here to work with you on this problem.

    You can't recover forgotten PIN. You will need to reset it.

    Reboot you computer and when you reach your Lock screen where you need to input your PIN, click "I forgot my PIN". Follow the online directions to Reset your PIN.

    Do let me know if you require any further help on this. Will be glad to help you.

    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.
