    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.

    Want to sign on with PIN instead of Password

    Thank you for your reply Person.

    Glad to know that the Pop up with the password manager is disabled with the above suggestion.

    Try the below suggestions to fix the issue with Signing in using PIN authentication.

    Steps 1: Launch the File Explorer.

    Step 2: Browse to this location, and delete the contents of the folder.

    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC

    Step 3: Go to Settings (Press Windows
    and I key), Accounts > Sign in Options.

    Step 4: Click on Add a PIN and set your PIN.

    Step 5: Restart the computer and check the status of the issue.

    Hope it helps.
