  2. Disabling User Passwords Disables PIN and Hello?

    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that the sign in option is not working after you disabled the option for PIN input for password.

    At this point, I would suggest you to deploy the
    System Restore option in Windows.

    This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you

    create a restore point manually
    . Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.

    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.

    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select
      Next > Finish.

    In order to disable the PIN sign in option in Windows 10, refer to the below steps.

    Step 1: Access PC settings and open
    Users and accounts
    .

    Step 2: Select Sign-in options and tap the
    Remove
    button under PIN.

    Note: you can navigate to the same path in order to re-enable the PIN.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank 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.

    How to disable the pin

    Disable Windows 10 Pro PIN complexity rules

    From Group Policy Editor, you may enable or disable other policies when creating a PIN. You can also configure them to your preferred option. You may double-click the policy that you want to enable or disable according to your preferences. Here's a description
    of each policy that is included in the PIN complexity:

    • Require digits
      • Not configured - Users must include a digit in their PIN.
      • Enabled - Users must include a digit in their PIN.
      • Disabled -Users can not use digits in their PIN.
    • Require lowercase letters
      • Not configured - Users can not use lowercase letters in their PIN.
      • Enabled - Users must include at least one lowercase letter in their PIN.
      • Disabled - Users can not use lowercase letters in their PIN.
    • Maximum PIN length
      • Not configured - PIN length must be less than or equal to 127.
      • Enabled - PIN length must be less than or equal to the number you specify.
      • Disabled - PIN length must be less than or equal to 127.
    • Minimum PIN length
      • Not configured - PIN length must be greater than or equal to 4.
      • Enabled - PIN length must be greater than or equal to the number you specify.
      • Disabled - PIN length must be greater than or equal to 4.
    • Expiration
      • Not configured - PIN does not expire.
      • Enabled - PIN can be set to expire after any number of days between 1 and 730, or PIN can be set to never expire by setting the policy to 0.
      • Disabled - PIN does not expire.
    • History
      • Not configured - Previous PINs are not stored.
      • Enabled - Specify the number of previous PINs that can be associated to a user account that can't be reused.
      • Disabled - Previous PINs are not stored.
    • Require special characters
      • Not configured - Users can not include a special character in their PIN.
      • Enabled - Users must include at least one special character in their PIN.
      • Disabled - Users can not include a special character in their PIN.
    • Require uppercase letters
      • Not configured - Users can not include an uppercase letter in their PIN.
      • Enabled - Users must include at least one uppercase letter in their PIN.
      • Disabled - Users can not include an uppercase letter in their PIN.
    After configuring the policy settings, attempt to create your desired PIN that would meet those requirements, this is to check if those policies would work. If the PIN and the policy settings are not working, attempt to create those policy settings and PIN
    on another device to see if it is isolated to your device only. If it still persists, kindly send the issue through the
    Feedback Hub app. This way, engineers would see this problem and address it. You may follow the steps on this
    link on how to send feedback to Microsoft through the
    Feedback Hub app. If you are to submit a feedback through the
    Feedback Hub
    app, make sure that you include every detail about the issue so that the engineers would have a better understanding of the issue. Also, make sure to visit your submission frequently for news or updates about what you have submitted.
