  1. Why can't I change my pin? Windows 10


    I forgot my pin and tried creating a new one. When I turn on my computer it asks me to setup my pin. I have to log in with my Microsoft account and then do the text message code. After that I get to the screen that asks me to put a new pin. I've tried so many different types of pins and all go back to, something went wrong. Basically, the only way to get into my computer is to do all these steps and then click skip for now. Then on my settings for my pin it says Something went wrong. Try again later. Even now on this post I can't show you a picture of it because it doesn't let me upload one, i

    Why can't I change my pin? Windows 10

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
