  1. Windows 10 PIN


    Hi,I am having issues re-enabling my Windows Hello Face login capability. It requires I do this via my Pin login code but I do not know this. I do not remember assigning a 6 digit pin as the facial recognition seemed to be enabled when I received the laptop from my work. I asked them if they knew the pin and the advised me I would have set it up by myself, I tried a few different digits I generally use but to no avail. Is there anyway I can receive the pin from Microsoft as I've tried looking for solutions online but nothing.Any help is appreciated - thanks!

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 PIN Sign-in

    Hi Pat,

    It is possible that the PIN set in an earlier build does not work after reinstalling Windows 10. To better assist you, we'd like clarify few things:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using before reinstalling Windows?
    • Have you tried resetting your PIN?
    • Did you get any error messages after you verified the PIN you entered?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow the steps in this
    article
    on how you can reset your PIN.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.
