  2. how to reset pin number

    Hi,

    Step 1: In the Lock screen, click on the I forgot my PIN link.

    Step 2: Enter your Microsoft account password and click Next.

    Step 3: If you have two-step verification turned on for your Microsoft account, you have to enter the recovery email address or phone number to verify your ownership.

    Step 4: Enter the security code you’ve received from Microsoft, and click Next.

    Step 5: Click on Continue to confirm. A popup will appear and you’re prompted to set up a PIN. Enter at least a minimum 4 digit new PIN number you want for your Microsoft account

    After resetting PIN successfully, you can now sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account using the new PIN. However, the "I forgot my PIN" option is only available at the sign-in screen when using a Microsoft account. If you are using a local account,
    follow steps in Option 2.

    If you are using a local account and forgot your PIN code, log in with your password and follow these steps below to reset your PIN.

    Step 1: On your lock screen, under the PIN entry box, select Sign-in options and sign in with your password.

    Step 2: Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and click on I forgot my PIN.

    Step 3: Type your account password and click OK.

    Step 4: Enter your new PIN in the fields and click OK. Then a new PIN is created.

    Good luck
