    Windows 10 asks me for my pin after several weeks and clears my taskbar and saved passwords


    My settings are set so that I don't have to type in my pin to login in Windows 10. It seems to be random that it decides to ask for my pin. Whenever it happens though, it clears the apps I had pinned to my bottom taskbar and doesn't remember any of my passwords or login information. You can imagine how this would be extremely frustrating logging into 10 different websites again because of what happened. Does anyone know what is going on? Why does it happen randomly out of the blue? How can I fix this? Why does it happen randomly? How do I stop it?

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar


    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar


    Thanks Josey Wales,

    I can pin and unpin People contacts to the taskbar without problems, but these contacts will still show up on the "Pin suggested" list. It's this list I want to clear, because some contacts or double and some are dummy contacts. It's not that big of a deal, but it's rather annoying to have them suggested to me.

    OneDrive files won't stay pinned to taskbar

    If a pin an excel files that is saved in my OneDrive folder to the pinned excel files list in the taskbar, once I open that file it disappears from the pinned list. This only happens with files saved in the OneDrive folder. Any files saved in my documents
    remain pinned to the taskbar. How can I get the OneDrive files to stay pinned? They stayed pinned before but just started disappearing this last week.
