  1. Laptop cannot open as pin does not work


    I have two PC's. One Desktop and another Laptop. Both need a pin at bootup to open. The desktop works fine. But the Laptop doesn't open as one key required for the pin is malfunctioning. There is no reset button. I am stuck at the Challenge stage as the key needed for A1B1C1 challenge does not function. How to proceed.

    :)

    Windows pin not working after restart

    Hi Bhaumik,

    The possible cause of this issue is corruption of files or it could be missing registry settings. To address your concern, we suggest you to follow these steps:

    • Open File Explorer and browse to this location:
      C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC
    • Delete everything within that folder
    • Go to Settings > Accounts >Sign-in Options, click Add a PIN again and set your PIN
    • PIN sign in should work going forward


    Let us know how it works.

    WINDOWS 10 CANNOT ASSOCIATE FILES using OPEN WITH

    Thanks but not a solution. I already looked at the choose more list....

    AND does not work from file explorer right click, and the whole idea is NOT to have to open Photoshop first, then look for file to open.

    ON the choose other app list- PHOTOSHOP does not appear at all though it is installed and shows in the programs, now called apps, list.

    Shift click does nothing. Still not in the list- forces to choose a default from the ones I don't want.

    Simply not in the list.

    Still cannot add a file type to the list of types either. And if I did manage to add the file type, I can't find the Unreal program in apps list either.

    SO the only workaround (and I suppose built in feature meant to work this way) is to PIN to a program and then open the file- and extra step and not an improvement IN MY OPINION.

    Windows 10 has not ever worked with drag drop well- if I drag a file to a task bar icon it only pins it.

    Cannot drag files into teamspeak file browser any more either. A whole OTHER annoyance in win 10.
