  1. Pin option missing from lock screen


    A few days ago when booting up my laptop I lost the option to login using my pin. I've tried resetting this in account settings but when I try to add a new pin it has me login with my password and old pin, then stops running the process. If I click the "forgot pin" option the pop-up window tells me to go to the account settings window that I already have open to reset my pin.

    :)

    Pin option missing from lock screen

    Do you mean that the login screen no longer shows the link to "Sign in options" beneath the space where you enter your Password?

    I indeed think that is what he means! Mine doesn't show it too. It has probably a link with his other threat from coming out of sleepmode, cuz I have those two problems also on my Asus Laptop. (Asus laptop restarts from sleep when on battery - Windows 10 Forums)
