  1. How to remove "I forgot my PIN" button from Windows 10 login screen?


    I know with certainty that I will never forget my PIN. However, using my Surface, I frequently accidentally tap that button instead of the password field or "Sign in options" button.

    Login screen: How to remove the 'I forgot my password/pin' link

    For some reason, there is a link below the field where I enter my password on the login/lock screen that says 'I forgot my password/pin.'

    I don't think this is normal, I have seen login screens without it.

    Looked for ways to remove this link but can't find any. Anyone know how to remove it?

    • You can now add a new PIN and click OK.
