  2. Latest Windows 10 update - problems

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    From the description I understand that, after installing the latest update you lost the access to the taskbar.

    In Windows 10, your device is always kept up to date with the latest features and fixes. Updates and drivers are installed automatically, with no need to select which updates are needed or not needed.
    In rare cases, a specific driver or update might temporarily cause issues with your device.

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    • In search type Taskbar and select
      customize the taskbar.
    • Now check if auto-hide task bar is tick marked.
    • If yes, uncheck the check box, click on Apply
      and OK.
    Once you get your taskbar back, follow the below steps to pin applications to taskbar.

    • Go to the applications which you want to pin to taskbar.
    • Right click on it and select pin to taskbar.

    Example: Right click on Chrome from desktop icon and select pin to taskbar.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

  3. Windows 10 Hello not working on HP Envy dv6 after latest update

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply and update.

    As you have mentioned that after installing latest update for Windows 10 pin and fingerprint recognition no longer functioning, I suggest you to let us know the details of that update after which you started experiencing this issue.

    Follow these steps to open the “view update history” screen:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on Control Panel.

    • Click on Windows Update.

    You will find “view update history” option in the left panel.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    PIN now missing after latest update

    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.
