    Hi Pav,

    You can create a password hint by creating or changing your password from the
    Control Panel

    Settings

    These steps are from the Control Panel:

    • Type Control Panel from the Cortana search field, then click
      Control Panel from the results.
    • Select Change account type under User Accounts.
    • Choose the user you want to set the password with.
    • Create or change the password, then type the password hint just below the password fields.
    • Click the Create password button if you're creating the password for the first time, or the
      Change password button if you're only changing your password.
