    Unable to set PIN for log-in

    I have tried every suggestion I have found online, but nothing works. When I click to add a pin, nothing happens. This is a new Windows 10 laptop, and from day 1 of set-up, I was unable to set a PIN. I had Windows 10 on another laptop and was able to set
    ta PIN with no problem. The more I use Windows 10, the more discouraged I become.
