  1. PIN number log in to windows 10


    My pin number log in stopped working and I could not reset it so I removed it in settings. I cannot now get a pin number log on as the option is greyed out. I now cannot get onto my laptop when away from my home wifi and password log on. Now can a reinstate PIN number log on please?

    :)

  2. Log-in Pin is incorrect after Anniversary update


    I had the same issue after my update on Windows 10. I knew that my pin hadn't changed but it was saying it was incorrect. So I said that I forgot my pin and it started going through the steps to reset the pin entered my regular password and when the window popped up to set a new pin I said cancel and then I chose the option to set my pin later. I exited the screen, logged off logged back in, and set up a new pin which happened to be the same pin I had before and it worked. If this still doesn't work I can show step by step screen shots if you need. I have a surface 3 with Windows 10 fully updated 10.0.14393.0

    Trouble saving voicemail number

    To access my voicemail it is my phone number, a pause and 4 digit pin.



    I did the following steps:

    • Turned off default voicemail number
    • Added a , (for pause) at end of my phone number
    • Added the 4 digit pin
    I get the following error message We're having trouble saving your voicemail number right now. Try again later.



    Any suggestions on how to correct this?

    how to reset pin number

    Hi,

    Step 1: In the Lock screen, click on the I forgot my PIN link.

    Step 2: Enter your Microsoft account password and click Next.

    Step 3: If you have two-step verification turned on for your Microsoft account, you have to enter the recovery email address or phone number to verify your ownership.

    Step 4: Enter the security code you’ve received from Microsoft, and click Next.

    Step 5: Click on Continue to confirm. A popup will appear and you’re prompted to set up a PIN. Enter at least a minimum 4 digit new PIN number you want for your Microsoft account

    After resetting PIN successfully, you can now sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account using the new PIN. However, the "I forgot my PIN" option is only available at the sign-in screen when using a Microsoft account. If you are using a local account,
    follow steps in Option 2.

    If you are using a local account and forgot your PIN code, log in with your password and follow these steps below to reset your PIN.

    Step 1: On your lock screen, under the PIN entry box, select Sign-in options and sign in with your password.

    Step 2: Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and click on I forgot my PIN.

    Step 3: Type your account password and click OK.

    Step 4: Enter your new PIN in the fields and click OK. Then a new PIN is created.

    Good luck
