    Using my PIN on another computer's microsoft store


    I am attempting to sign into my friends computer's Microsoft store. I want to test sea of thieves on his computer to see if it could run it. I use sign in with another account, and sign in with my account. It all goes fine until I get directed to set up my account with Microsoft hello. It asks me to enter my PIN, which I assume is what I set as my PIN on my main computer where I first signed into the Microsoft store. The one I use every time I start my computer and have to enter it. It didn't work. I went back to my main computer and tried to change my pin in my settings, yet it didn't work. We really wanna try sea of thieves before the sale ends. knowing my luck it's not the right PIN, probably something on the internet. Any help would be appreciated!

    :)

  2. Microsoft Windows 10 Pin won't work to sign into Microsoft Store

    I finally managed to solve this on my own. Here is how I did it, for anyone else having the same problem:

    • From inside my own computer account, I went to Settings -> Accounts -> Your Info, and clicked "Sign in with a local account instead". I followed all steps to make that account a local account rather than a Microsoft account. (This was necessary for later
      steps.)
    • From inside my daughter's computer account, I went to Settings -> Accounts -> Your info, and clicked "Sign in with a local account instead". I followed all steps to make her account a local account.
    • From inside my daughter's computer account, I went to Settings -> Accounts -> Your info, and clicked "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead". I followed all steps to set it up with MY own Microsoft account.
    • This done, I was now able to access the store as myself (from within my daugher's computer account) to download my purchased version of Minecraft for her.

      (Side note - at one point it prompted me for the pin for MY Microsoft account, but it actually required the pin from HER Microsoft account. So if you are getting caught on PINS, try that of the second account instead of your own.)
    • Once I had finished with the Microsoft Store and gotten software set up, I went back again (inside my daughter's account) to Settings -> Accounts -> Your info, and clicked "Sign in with a local account instead". I followed all steps to remove MY Microsoft
      account from her computer account.
    • Again, still inside my daughter's computer account, Settings -> Accounts -> Your info, and clicked "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead". I followed all steps to set it up again with her own Microsoft account.
    • Then I logged back into my own computer account, went to Settings -> Accounts -> Your info, and clicked "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead". I followed all steps to set it back up again with my own Microsoft account.

    Viola!

    Both our accounts are set up again the way they should be again, and I managed to get into the Microsoft Store and set everything up on my daughter's computer account.

    I have also verified that the installations still work after I set her computer account back up again with her Microsoft account.

    As a workaround it is a bit clunky, but it works. So if you are stuck like I was, give it a try.

  3. Unable to download app from Microsoft Store

    It seems that this is a Chrome issue. Have you tried resetting Chrome?



    On the other hand, we suggest that you open Microsoft Store app instead of opening Store through Chrome. The following are steps on how to open Microsoft Store on Windows 10:

    • To open Microsoft Store on Windows 10, select the Microsoft Store icon on the taskbar.
    • If you don't see the Microsoft Store icon on the taskbar, it might have been unpinned. To pin it, select the Start button, type
      Microsoft Store, press and hold (or right-click) Microsoft Store, then choose More > Pin
      to taskbar
      .
    • If Microsoft Store won't launch, get more info at Microsoft Store does
      not launch
      .


    Regards.
