  1. Set up my PIN button not working.


    Hey, so basically I was messing around in settings and i forgot to add a PIN while working with windows hello and I forgot to add a PIN so a couple of minutes later I shut off my PC like normal and now I cant log in because it says “Something happened and your PIN isn’t available. Click to set up your PIN again.” Im pressing the little set up my PIN button and there is a little popup loading that suddenly turns grey and disappears. Please help, I NEED my PC.

    Why doesn't my pin work with the anniversary edition?

    Hi Nancy,

    We would like to know more about the issue. Before you had the Anniversary Update, were you using an 8-digit PIN?

    For the meantime, we suggest that you remove the current PIN and create a new PIN. You can do that by following these steps:

    • Select the Start button, type Settings, and select it from the list of results.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Select Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, select Remove.

    After you have deleted your current PIN, create a new 4-digit PIN by following these steps:

    • Select the Start button, type Settings, and select it from the list of results.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Select Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, select Add.

    Once you have created your new 4-digit PIN, restart your computer and sign-in using the new 4-digit PIN.

    Note: It is very important that you remove then create a new PIN rather than changing the current PIN.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    Can't create pin for login. Pin stopped working

    Hi Kevin,

    To resolve your concern about creating pin to your computer, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Navigate to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC (click to get permission when prompted).
    • Delete the contents of that folder (delete everything in that folder, but leave that folder and everything above it).
    • Go back to settings, accounts, sign in options.
    • Your non-working pin will now be gone, and you can just click 'add a pin' and set it again.

    Let us know how it goes.
