    PIN Login not working


    Trying to log into windows. It is not accepting my PIN number - and it is not giving me an alternative to put in another password. I cannot find a place to change the PIN without being logged into the machine.

  4. PIN Login not working

    Can't create pin for login. Pin stopped working

    Hi Kevin,

    To resolve your concern about creating pin to your computer, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Navigate to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC (click to get permission when prompted).
    • Delete the contents of that folder (delete everything in that folder, but leave that folder and everything above it).
    • Go back to settings, accounts, sign in options.
    • Your non-working pin will now be gone, and you can just click 'add a pin' and set it again.

    Let us know how it goes.
