    I do not want to set up a pin during setting up a new windows computer


    I do not want to set up a pin during setting up a new windows computer.

    It will not let me move forward in setting up my computer UNLESS I set up a pin.


    How do I bypass this during setup?!!!

    :)

    Cannot set up PIN after Creators Update

    In this case, we recommend to repair and set up a new PIN by doing the following steps:

    • Open File Explorer and browser to this location:
    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC

    • Delete everything within that folder. You must be logged in as the Administrator to do this.
    • Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options.
    • Click Add a PIN again and set your PIN.
    • PIN sign in should work moving forward.

    Let us know if the steps above works.

    Sign-in taking time after setting up PIN

    Hello Harold,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that it is frustrating when the features don’t work the way there are supposed to. Usually, it takes time to login using the PIN after setting it up for the first time, as Windows optimizes and connects all the applications
    linked to your Microsoft account to give access using the PIN.



    I suggest you to try logging in again and wait for some time to let Windows optimize the PIN for next use.



    However, if you want to remove the PIN you can follow the steps mentioned below.



    1. Login to the PC using password, and go to
      Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.
    2. Under PIN click on
      Remove.
    3. Enter the password and click on
      OK.
    4. Restart the PC.


    Hope it helps.



    Regards,
