    I am trying to sign in to my laptop using my microsoft account, and I'm at the stage where it asks for the computer password. However, I've set up a PIN and I've been using a PIN for roughly a year now. Is there any way to recover the password without resetting the computer? I do know my PIN, I've just forgotten my password. I'm also pretty sure I didn't set up security questions.

    :)

    Laptop was stolen, how do I remove acces to my Microsoft account?


    Sign into your Microsoft account. There should be a "devices" tab towards the right. Open that tab and remove the device from the list. Also, change your Microsoft account password as recomended.
