  1. Why does MS request a Non-Existant PIN to set up Outlook? (Win10 Pro)


    Why does MS request a PIN, when I do not have one, and do not want one.
    I'm trying to set up a replacement PC, and to open a (mine) Outlook account, yet it demands my PIN.
    As stated i do not have one, I do not want one, so at what point did I become an employee of Microsoft for it to insist I have one
    Before I explode can someone please explain my options (bearing in mind I still do not want nor as far as I am concerned need a PIN)
    Many thanks

    :)
