    Locked out of Windows 10 after entering the wrong PIN


    My 92 year old Mother who is in another state is having computer problems. It appears she has entered the wrong pin and is locked out. She says she enters the A1B2C3 but it doesnt help. I see info on how to login on a Windows phone but not for a computer. Can you advise in detail what she needs to do so I can get her back online>> I appreciate your help.
