    Its called "CX", Microsoft. I don't want to participate in your themepark ride.


    There is absolutely NO reason I should be forced to use a damned PIN when I've been using passwords for 20 years, which are MUCH MORE secure (I don't care what your articles attempt to say otherwise).


    Fix it!

    Forced proxy settings

    Is there anyway to disable forced internet settings?

    When I try and remove the settings they come right back after I close and reopen

    My firefox runs fine but many apps on my computer are WRECKed right now. Steam for example I can't update my games or use the built in browser. Friends list still seems to stay up to date, but avatars aren't generated.

    I can't access my LAN settings for proxies either.

    I want to fix this without reformatting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Stop forcing us to use a dang pin.

    Already doing that but I want it to stop forcing me to enter a pin when I unlock my PC, is is flipping annoying. Microsoft shouldn't be forcing this on us. I want it to stop.

    It doesn't matter how many times that I remove the pin it still comes up "create a pin" when I unlock after a reboot. Come one
    I need this to stop not keep going. You are only offering temp solutions I need a perminate one apart from changing OS altogether.

    forced to make a pin login

    Underneath the password box, click Sign-in options, choose password key icon then sign in.

    Temporarily setup the pin the remove it after setup using the following steps:

    After setting up the PIN and arriving at the desktop...

    Click Start > Settings > Accounts > Sign in options

    Under PIN, click 'I forgot my PIN'

    Enter the password associated with your Microsoft account followed by OK.

    On the next page, click Cancel and no new PIN will be added.

    Why am I being forced to change my PIN number?: I am aware that this question has been previously asked, but it seems that this question was not fully answered. Since the password is only for logging into the computer itself, why does it appear that "my organization" required me to change my PIN number? I've only had my...

    Why the <bleep> is MS forcing me to use a PIN?: I recently installed Windows 10 Pro on a new (to me) laptop.
