  1. My University Forcing Me to Change My Pin


    My computer is setup with my personal email, but I had to sign-in in word with my school email to use Microsoft office. Now my computer is saying "my organization needs me to change my PIN" to a 6-digit PIN, but I want to keep my 4-digit PIN. It says this while logging in with my personal Microsoft account not linked to my school email, but a personal one.

    :)
