  1. Windows 10 pin removal


    Hi


    I have a surface with microsoft account attached

    I can log on fine with my email but I cannot remember my PIN number


    when i try to reset or change my PIN number it only sends the authentication code to a phone number ie text or calls that number. The issue is I do not have that phone number any more.


    when i choose another verification method it only has the text or call number options and not an email address



    please advise how i can resolve this

    :)

    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.
