  1. Windows 10 Home - Pin Requirements Changed after logging into a School Account

    Hey everyone,



    Recently I logged into my School Windows 365 account to use MS Word. I think I accidentally clicked the option to let my organization manage my PC. How do I remove this? It had changed my personal desktop to a 6 digit pin instead of my normal 4.

    I have tried removing all sign ins through Exchange for my school account and tried the "Allow Telemetry" fix and neither of those have removed this restriction for a 6 digit pin. Do I just need to factory reset?



    Thanks for any help.

    Windows 10 - No longer able to log in with pin


    Before going to a lengthy explanation and advice, could you please confirm if I am right or wrong assuming that your original user account, that from school, is an Azure AD account?

    If you are not sure, do this to check it:

    Sign in to your school account. When signed in, click your avatar in Start menu and select Switch account:

    Now sign in to your MS account. When signed in, click the MS account avatar in Start menu. Can you now see the school account name as Azure AD\Your_Name:

    How we proceed depends on if the school account is shown as Azure AD account or not.

    Each user account in Windows have their own password and PIN. Whatever account type the school account is, it has its PIN. When you set up an additional MS account, it requires its own PIN:

    Windows 10 Home - Pin Requirements Changed after logging into a School Account

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
