  1. I have to change my pin far to often among other things


    I am sick of being constantly told that my institution requires me to change my pin, i don't even have an institution? I have tried multiple command prompts and such from these forums but it never works so if someone has an up to date solution that would be great. Also, i can't change any of my security settings as I'm told "this option is currently unavailable". Like this is my computer, it's pretty bizarre that i have so many things telling what i can and cannot do lol. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Pinning things to the file explorer on start bar?

    @Alfred001, if you hover your mouse to the far right of any name in the 'Recent' list you can pin it to the list of pinned items. This works for the File Explorer icon on Start and on the taskbar (if you have File Explorer pinned to the taskbar).

    Pinning things to the file explorer on start bar?

    Ah, thank you!

    I noticed that but thought it was for unpinning.
