  1. Remember PIN but forgot password


    So, I remember my PIN for my account, which is an Administrator type Account, but I forgot my password. I tried reseting my password but because it asks me to enter my forgotten password, i can't reset my password. And also, my windows user isn't connected with my Microsoft Account yet, so it is impossible to change my local password from this website. I am currently using Windows 10, latest version. And as long as I remember, I never change my password and I still remember it very well, but windows said that the password is incorrect, and since I've been using PIN for a long time, i forgot if I changed the password or not. Please help, Thank you very much.

    :)

  2. Cannot remember password and PIN to login

    Hi,

    As per the query, I would like to inform that you require to create a password prior to the creation of the PIN. If you remember the password, click on the sign-in options under the password box in the login screen.

    If you forgot your Microsoft account password,
    follow these steps.


    If you don’t have a Microsoft account and forgot your local account password,
    you can’t recover it. Instead, you’ll need to reset your PC.

    Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

    • Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.
    • While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.
    • On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.
    • Your PC will restart and will reset itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
