    Pin problem signing in


    When I go to sign in to my Microsoft account on my computer, it says something happened and my pin isn’t available. When I looked this up the solution was to click other sign in options, but my computer only has a button that says set up pin. When I click that, and button comes up that says this software needs to be installed asks if I want to go to the App Store and if I click that, nothing happens. I’m aware this issue probably came from me trying to adjust a setting trying to get a game to run better but I am unsure of how to fix this or sign into my computer at all. Anyone have any insight

    :)

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to remove the sign in pin/password options.

    • In the search box type sign-in-option.
    • Click on the sign-in-option.
    • Then you can find password/pin/picture password.
    • There you can remove the option and check.

    Windows 10 PIN Sign-in

    Hi Pat,

    It is possible that the PIN set in an earlier build does not work after reinstalling Windows 10. To better assist you, we'd like clarify few things:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using before reinstalling Windows?
    • Have you tried resetting your PIN?
    • Did you get any error messages after you verified the PIN you entered?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow the steps in this
    article
    on how you can reset your PIN.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.
