Windows 10: Unknown PIN

Discus and support Unknown PIN in Windows 10 Installation and Upgrade to solve the problem; I have a brand new computer, I can sign in using Microsoft account info but I don't want to as this is a company computer, not my personal one.

  1. Unknown PIN


    I have a brand new computer, I can sign in using Microsoft account info but I don't want to as this is a company computer, not my personal one. So would like to set up a local account but it won't let me, apparently. It claims I have a PIN set up already but I am not aware of one (and the one I use on my personal computer doesn't work for login).

    :)

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar


    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar


    Thanks Josey Wales,

    I can pin and unpin People contacts to the taskbar without problems, but these contacts will still show up on the "Pin suggested" list. It's this list I want to clear, because some contacts or double and some are dummy contacts. It's not that big of a deal, but it's rather annoying to have them suggested to me.
