    Win10 Admin PIN not working


    Hi

    I have sole admin access to a desktop with three other users.

    My pin has stopped working

    The other users see the following under the login box

    "I forgot my PIN

    Sign-in options"


    I don't have any options under the login box

    If I use my pin the following appears under login box

    "Password hint: Keyboard

    Reset password"

    The reset password options requires a "password reset key" which is no help

    Is there a simple solution

    Thanks

    Evan

    :)

  3. Can't create pin for login. Pin stopped working

    Hi Kevin,

    To resolve your concern about creating pin to your computer, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Navigate to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC (click to get permission when prompted).
    • Delete the contents of that folder (delete everything in that folder, but leave that folder and everything above it).
    • Go back to settings, accounts, sign in options.
    • Your non-working pin will now be gone, and you can just click 'add a pin' and set it again.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Win10 Admin PIN not working

    Windows pin not working after restart

    Hi Bhaumik,

    The possible cause of this issue is corruption of files or it could be missing registry settings. To address your concern, we suggest you to follow these steps:

    • Open File Explorer and browse to this location:
      C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC
    • Delete everything within that folder
    • Go to Settings > Accounts >Sign-in Options, click Add a PIN again and set your PIN
    • PIN sign in should work going forward


    Let us know how it works.
