    Lost the ability to log into Windows 10 with PIN

    Hi Przemyslaw,

    Some system components may be missing or corrupted, causing the problem you are facing to occur. Before we can fully address this, please answer some things so we can understand this better:

    • Did this start after updates were installed on the computer?
    • Does the same situation happen when you add a pin as your sign-in option in Windows Settings?

    Since you have tried adding the option in Control Panel, let's see if there will be a difference when we do it in Windows Settings. Follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Open Settings.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Go to Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, click on Add.

    You can also try the suggestions posted by John Rubdy on this

    page
    .

    Let us know if the steps above help you set up a PIN on your computer.

    Regards.

    Hi,



    You can personalize the desktop of two computers by pinning the apps, documents and other programs to the taskbar.



    Before we assist further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • Are you referring to dual screen desktop feature of the computer?
    • Do you want to personalize two different PC taskbars?


    You can differ personalizing taskbar applications on different computers. You can either pin the same or differ the applications, programs or games on the computer taskbar according to the necessity.



    To pin the apps to taskbar, follow the steps below:



    • Click on Windows logo key on the keyboard to open
      Start menu
      .
    • Right click on the app and select Pin to taskbar option from the context menu.
    • Close the window and check if the app is pinned to taskbar.
