    Turn off PIN Login


    I just rec'd my laptop that was supposed to have Win 10, but had Win 11 instead. I want to turn off PIN login, but the button to remove is grayed out. Contacted HP tech support & was told it was a software issue & I needed to contact SmartFriend. I purposely chose a laptop that advertised as having Win 10 b/c I knew Win 11 had issues & now I'm stuck w/a crappy OS & no support from HP.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    5. Click on Apply, OK and close the window.
    6. Restart the device and check if the sign-in using PIN is available on the login screen.
